Last Season, Concept & Direction by Lernert and Sander

Exceptionally talented Amsterdam-based artists Lernert and Sander create simple but stunning high-concept art films and installations driven by a unique, cheeky sense of humor. A year out of university I saw them speak at OFFF Festival in Barcelona, and was completely enamored by their matter-of-fact ideas and innovative eye that never fails to transform everyday objects into fantastical, vibrant creations (their color palettes are spot-on, too).

In the witty short film, "Last Season," Lernert and Sander reduce high-end knitted garments from some of the most covetable collections from Fall/Winter 2013 (including Céline, Chloé, Jil Sander and Prada) to mere balls of yarn. The results were showcased in the windows of clothing store Kiki Niesten in the Netherlands.

I love the idea that something so precious can be reduced to an object that one wouldn’t think twice about if it weren't for its luxury label. Plus, it’s hypnotic to simply watch the pieces unwind stitch by stitch.

Aside from "Last Season," I highly recommend exploring all that Lernert and Sander offer on their website, particularly Chocolate Bunny and Revenge.
