Flaka: It started out when I discovered Bonne's suit and orderded one. I have 6 by now....
Already there I realized that Bonne was interested in much more than fashion. I saw he's doing art projects & music, fading the boundaries of singular disciplines, empowering the youth. I researched and read all his interviews. In one interview he mentioned Rick Owens and Issey Miyake to be his favorite designers, both brands I have worked for. I liked his approach of going back to uniform. I was at the same point in a different field but with the same mindset.
Last year I did a pop up shop in Zurich on the prestigious Bahnhofstrasse and invited Bonne to send me some suits to sell, he didn't only bring the suits but came along with Smib a punk/rap collective from Amsterdam and Bonne's inner friend circle/family.
We celebrated the opening together and decided in Zurich to do a collaboration.
