excerpt:. Damien Florebert Cuypers, T

coffee has an interesting way of showing up in our cultural conversation. an exCerpt, of coffee and its collective appearance as a character in the every day.

If its held like coffee, looks like coffee, shaped like coffee then its coffee culture. Let it not be that the that an exCerpt on Damien Florebert Cuypers – the first was FW13 – is happening just because of the semblance of coffee alone. This wonderfully illustrated and full-colored capture of Penny Arcade from New York Fashion Week gives life to the intersection of two things held dear here- coffee and fashion.

In Damien Florebert Cuypers’ FW14 drawing, coffee is at once utilitarian and an accessory – just like fashion. cupUp to this Parisian transplant for sketching the streets and for sharing a coffee with yours truly this season.  cde
