Ones to watch: Michelle Cornelissen
When Aussie meets classic
Brand, identity and design are the keywords in Michelle Cornelissen’s designs. Her MICHI'M uniform collection mixes classic functionality with the social uniforms that present as tracksuits.
The clash between 90's Gabber culture with Aussi tracksuits and modern tracksuit culture, a trend called Warcore, reflects societal defence in uncertain times. MICHI’M’s clothing combines new materials with old army fabrics from the GDR era, reused from the stockpile acquired by collector Harry Linders, to preserve its quality in a new context.
