←Return to GLOBAL ART DAILY™ Publication
From its origins as an online publication tracking the movements of global contemporary art, GLOBAL ART DAILY™ is now launching its first womanswear Fall/Winter 2017 collection. Art and fashion go hand in hand, and this collection aims to showcase a new model of how contemporary art can use fashion as a new medium. Each GLOBAL ART DAILY™ collection will center around a new city and will bring to light its hidden subcultures on carefully-crafted garments, to be worn by fearlessly educated and well-traveled women.
'The place somewhere outside of some city. This is the dirt of that limit. The pulverized stone crushed into microprocessors. This is the face of that limit. The scaffolding that holds up a network of desire. This is the machine of that limit. A nondescriptive office designing apparel for the 21st century. This is New Abu Dhabi.’ – Kanye West, for Berlin-based 032c magazine, November 2016 ‘Calabasas’ issue.
GLOBAL ART DAILY™ x abu dhabi (F/W 2017) is GLOBAL ART DAILY™'s debut collection centering around the city of Abu Dhabi. With a collection of luxe streetwear, the line aims to bridge traditionally ornamented Emirati abaya and effortless Los Angeles airport style. While Kanye West claims that Calabasas is the New Abu Dhabi, we would like to rethink how Abu Dhabi could be a new Calabasas.
All proudly made in the UAE, each garment is made sourcing the country's finest silk and velvets. Tees are of the highest Gildan quality and are printed in the UAE.
The collection is a continuation of GLOBAL ART DAILY™'s efforts to test cross-cultural dialogues in the creative industry.
