David Casavant Archive


David Casavant Archive

With this book, David Casavant (born 1990), stylist and founder of the eponymous clothing archive in New York, expands beyond his fashion and celebrity collaborations to produce a book of encounters between artists and the archive, along with still lifes of favorite pieces. The project is about showing how different creative people with unique voices can come together to create something special.

The David Casavant Archive is a private collection of the world's rarest and most culturally potent contemporary design, with a focus on the work of conceptual menswear designers from the late '90s into the 2000s, notably Helmut Lang and Raf Simons. Begun in Casavant's native Tennessee when he was just 14, and curated over the span of more than a decade, the archive distinguishes itself through Casavant's distinct vision of youth and attitude. Although a private archive, it loans its pieces to select individuals within the sphere of current culture.

For this volume, a select number of creators—including Xavier Cha, DeSe Escobar, Eric Mack, Ryan Mcnamara, Joyce NG, Raul de Nieves, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Jacolby Satterwhite, Heji Shin, Ryan Trecartin, Wu Tsang and Boychild, Stewart Uoo, Thomas Eggerer and Maggie Lee—were invited to select items from the archive to serve as an inspiration for their original works of art. David Casavant Archive is a natural extension of Casavant's vision to make fashion accessible, alive and relevant for the times. This marriage of fashion and art across various mediums is a unique, innovative approach to how we view what we wear.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

CR Fashion Book

Joshua Glass

The fashion collector documents celebrity, creativity, and weirdness in stunning photography.

Gayletter

Luca Grondin

These more introspective documentations of his archive, placed between more refined, editorial references create a humorous overtone to the book as a whole. You get the sense he is masterfully serious about his work, but is not afraid to be cheeky.

Dansk Magazine

Casavant has used his extraordinary archive to work with artists, stylists and photographers to re-interpret and communicate the invaluable material history on which he sits; and now, this has materialized into a beautiful coffee-table book.

Office Magazine

[David Casavant Archive] offers up a rare glimpse of an archive that, in a world of fast fashion and overconsumption, where everything is disposable, seems almost fruitless.

Provocation and inspiration in 'David Casavant Archive'

David Casavant Archive is a provocative survey of stylist and fashion archivist David Casavant’s ever-expanding collection of recent-vintage designer clothing—based primarily on a foundation of late '90s and early 2000s "conceptual" menswear by Raf Simons, Jil Sander and Helmut Lang. Casavant’s archive of more than 5000 pieces is regularly put into service by artists, friends and celebrities like Kanye West, who contributes this 2018 screenshot to the book. Other contributors who created artwork from the archives include Xavier Cha, DeSe Escobar, Eric Mack, Ryan Mcnamara, Joyce NG, Raul de Nieves, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Jacolby Satterwhite, Heji Shin, Ryan Trecartin, Wu Tsang and Boychild, Stewart Uoo, Thomas Eggerer and Maggie Lee. continue to blog
