Already available for sale, the fall-winter 2017 Space collection has been the subject of a spatial experiment. On February 6th a handbag and a pair of sneakers were launched 38 km from earth from the Ashbourne base in England reaching 0% pressurisation and resisting temperatures of -64°C. A performance filmed from launch to landing. Made up of ‘High top’ sneakers and ‘Devine’ handbags in 6 matt colours embellished with school backpack style quick release buckles, the collection accompanies anoraks made from parachute canvas.
