In the Spring/Summer 2021 season, we invited a selected group of creatives to reflect on the collection’s ‘electric’ color palette. We encouraged them to scan their surroundings with fresh eyes and focus on the colors that may have been on the peripheries of their radars before: red, yellow and blue.
Tokyo-based photographer and art-director Ben Richards has been looking for those pops of colour in the urban environment of his adopted city.
The buildings he captured have a ‘metabolist’ structure – a Japanese style of architecture that came about post-World War II. These constructions were meant to take on a life of their own and be able to grow and adapt to the environment over time. Customisable and interchangeable – true to côte&ciel’s design principles.
