Le Cabinet de Curiosité de Thomas Erber
Every year Thomas' CDC holds an exhibition featuring exciting and innovative work in high-level design, fashion, and jewelry.
For our featured piece in the 2012 edition held in Berlin, Melindagloss found influence in both past and present styles. Based on the famous photograph of French pilot and writer Antoine de Saint-Exupery, we revisited the 1950's aviator-inspired parka and blended in a modern, hybrid design. The main body of the coat is made from drap de laine, finished with a sheepskin collar and leather strap.
Many thanks to Thomas Erber and Andreas Murkudis.
