Sarabande sculpture artist Emmely Elgersma collaborates with womenswear designer Renata Brenha for her AW24 Paris Showroom. We captured Emmely’s process, showing an exclusive BTS to the creation of her rock vase in the lead up to the showroom:
“The reason that I applied for Sarabande was to collaborate with different artists working in different mediums”
For Mineral, the AW24 collection, Renata shot the collection in the splendour of Joatinga beach, on the west side of Rio de Janeiro, once again praising the cultural power of her country of origin, this time focusing on the exuberant stillness of winter in the tropics. The collection features two of Renata's signatures, sublime pleating and up-cycled football jerseys.
Through the lens of fellow compatriot photographer Marina Zabenzi, references mobilised by Renata in Mineral are placed in dialogue with the solidity of the rocks on the Rio coast – rocks that, despite appearing static, are continually being sculpted by the sea.
