Hiver, printemps, été, automne 
My friend Adem Elahel and I got the habit to take walks in the forest around Brussels, the city surrounded by forest.
In 2021, we started a project, bringing some belgian clothes from my collection with us during some of our rides, photographing them with a really special technic proper to Adem.
In a dense and colorful nature, paced by the four seasons, garments looks like abandonned - fixed in their native coutryside, Belgium. Some of them appear like plants or minerals, while some others emerge almost dreamily from their background.

The pieces are mainly extracted from Dirk Bikkembergs outfits, with some other Belgian names as well, produced in the 80’s, 90’s. These particular pieces come into view today as rare artefacts from another era : Chronological marks distilled carefully on the landscape.
