The destefashioncollection was conceived by the DESTE Foundation as a novel approach to evaluating and interpreting fashion. Each year between 2007 and 2014, the Foundation commissioned an artist familiar with the fashion industry to reinterpret visually and/or verbally five inspiring designs from that year’s international fashion collections—the selected individual’s five related works then completed a capsule collection.

Our Pearl Strand Earrings and Faux Fox Scarf are part of the Collection curated by Diller Scofio Renfro.
