The ever innovative Moncler has noticed the work of British photographer Dan Holdsowrth who in 2010 photographed impressive mountain terrain in Iceland, capturing an astonishing view of the now sadly shrinking glaciers. Moncler has selected one of the images from Dan’s work and reproduced it throughout a collection of jackets, trousers, and accessories such as shoes, and bags. Resulting in an eye-catching capsule collection – The Blackout Project by Dan Holdsworth.
The project pays tribute to the majesty of nature, which has long been an element of inspiration and a source of challenge for Moncler. Thanks to Holdsworth’s images, it offers a profound cue for analysis, something resembling a giant X-ray which reveals the hidden skeleton of the mountain to the eye. Moncler Blackout’s unique collection will be presented in the brand’s flagship stores from September 2014, and will be displayed worldwide with a touring photographic display.
Dan Holdsworth is English, and was born in 1974. He studied photography at the London College of Printing, and has put his signature to personal exhibitions at the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art in Gateshead and London’s Barbican Art Gallery. He has also taken part in collective exhibitions organized at London’s Tate Britain and the Centre Pompidou in Paris. His pieces have become part of the body of works displayed in institutions such as the Tate Collection, the Saatchi Collection and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. – from Moncler
