ANDREA CREWS

Andrea Crews is a collective led by Maroussia Rebecq who resides and creates somewhere between art and fashion by federating stylists, illustrators, musicians, video directors and performers. Combining several aspects of contemporary creation, collections are presented and stated as performances, happenings and videos. In opposition to the dominant uniformity, Andrea Crews emphasizes personal creativity, experimentation and independence.

Andrea Crews’ process is based on a game with clothing codes. A first experimental phase consists in reinterpreting of second-hand clothes, classics of other brands, by getting back stocks and by cutting in the falls. Every piece is individually handled, according to its initial function and its potential. Prototypes are then selected according to a theme to create every season a simple and unusual collection. Andrea Crews also prints basics in association with associated artists (sweat-shirts and t-shirts), which are edited in limited series: screen printings, drawings, flockings in hallucinating colors and materials…

Andrea Crews interferes with public space, art centers, galleries and invites artists coming from different backgrounds but stemming from the same pop, experimental and playful universe. More than forms, Andrea Crews values the creative energy. Our workshop is a proficient platform where art and fashion are intertwined. The garment is a medium, the heap an inexhaustible source for inspiration. Between naive art and underground counterculture, the crew directs “flash videos”, ten-hands wall-drawings, living sculptures, unexpected decors, festive performances and incredible parties…
