Based in Paris and developed by Dutch fashion designer Mattia Akkermans and French visual artist Morgan Belenguer, New Relation is thought of as a laboratory that reflects on this new era of fragility, and general vulnerability we live in. Each item they design is both part of their installations and permanent collection. Like transforming skin, the garments are generally made of deadstock fabrics that can be renewed with substitute ones. In constant evolution, New Relation is conceived as a metamorphic entity. Mattia Akkermans worked as a designer for several luxury fashion houses in Paris such as Saint Laurent and Chloé, among others.
