the second book by cult fashion brand vetements will be launched by idea publishers during the hustle and bustle of paris fashion week at comme des garçons trading museum on mon – oct 3 [5.30pm-7.30pm]. similarly to the first release, it's undoubtedly a much-prized possession, featuring shots of the brand's s/s 2017 collection by pierre-ange carlotti, an up-and-coming visual provocateur based in the city of light, and who collaborated on the project with stylist lotta volkova and model paul hameline. vetements may be a company, but this project also signals that it's a tightly-knit group of both friends and collaborators.

the book was shot at a château in northern france and the result is a stream of quirky shots that seamlessly match the off-beat identity of the brand. additionally, the book features the collab collection in which vetements worked with juicy couture, brioni, comme des garçons shirt, champion, manolo blahnik, and twelve more companies on uniquely tweaked and reinvented product lines. having shown the collection at galeries lafayette in paris during couture week this past july, vetements will skip the upcoming edition of fashion week and instead presents this summercamp book. launch location: 54 rue du faubourg st.-honoré [st.-honoré].
