Last November, Mode and Mode travelled to Amsterdam and London to launch issue 7, along with D&K LOOKBOOK 2019 (published by Surpllus). The issue presents the text works by D&K from 2012 to present. D&K (Ricarda Bigolin and Nella Themelios) produced writing—including ficto-critical prose, patchwriting, poetry, and screenwriting—to reconstitute components of fashion, such as garments, retail atmosphere and packaging ephemera.
Our Amsterdam launch, hosted by art and theory book store San Serriffe and the critical fashion collective Warehouse, featured a performance of the special edition D&K Covers (created by Chantal Kirby and Ricarda Bigolin) to house Mode and Mode and D&K LOOKBOOK 2019. This was followed by a London launch at Tender Books on December 4.
