Designer Erik Frenken and multimedia artist sven signe den hartogh worked together this season, resulting in a film that breathes the spirit of the AW18 collection. We have decided to release this film on a limited edition on VHS. The artistic development of designer Erik Frenken has a lot in common with the creative values of the artist sven signe den hartogh. Both are looking for a moment of silence and layering in a world where speed and superficiality predominate. This collaboration has resulted in a film in which the frozen moments of nature is interwoven with the idea of the collection of F R E N K E N. We have chosen to immortalize this film on VHS, because it makes the collaboration tangible and for us something mystically represented. '' - sven signe den hartogh "I recognize a lot of common ground between sven's intrinsic artistic quest and the moment I find myself as a designer, a moment where peace and trust are leading '' - Erik Frenken
Can you tell us how you started this collection? I started with this vision" STAY PATIENT AND TRUST YOUR JOURNEY" For me it is all about trust in yourself and in your own guts. Looking towards inside and follow your own path. Be true to yourself. It is about calmness the colour green is an important element, botanical influence plays a part in the collection. How would you describe your collection? Simple but strong.
