VALENTIN-project | Isabelle Baines
Le Valentin is the name of a simple sweater, that is precise, “right” —almost self-evident. This model, conceived and made without finishing and without useless or superfluous additions, is the distillate of a search for the essential that characterizes the work of Isabelle Baines. From thought to thread and back, it is and remains the benchmark and signature-style of her creations.
Isabelle asked 28 artists to develop their own individual take on the ‘Valentin’. Starting from the givens of this sweater’s formal simplicity and the color navy-blue, each has been afforded the liberty of interpreting or reinventing it according to his or her own visual and tactile language.
