Together with designer Mark Kenly Domino Tan Sarah Müllertz created The Stilos Collection - a series of wearable mini art pieces.
The name Stilos refers to the pillars or columns of ancient Greece. And like pillars, these bold and highly sculptural earrings are designed as aesthetic variations of a repetitive theme according to composition, rhythm and purpose. The aspiration for both Sarah Müllertz and Mark Kenly Domino Tan has been to create design that will stand out and remain modern through generations - to create enduring beauty.
The collection was revealed at MKDT´s AW20 show in Copenhagen:
Mark Kenly Domino Tan staged his fall show inside Copenhagen’s oldest library, its circa 1482 hallway serving as the runway. Overhead, a local children’s choir sang a stirring hymn. The clothes that emerged first had vaguely monastic shapes: heavy wool capes in brown and black with matching long skirts. There were pussy-bow blouses tied primly at the neck, along with fluid, oversized suiting. A gray dress made of suiting fabric and pintucked at the waist stood out.
This was a wardrobe fit for a particularly well-heeled bibliophile, a professional who only dresses in sharp clothes made well and with luxe materials.
Tan doesn’t experiment much when it comes to his aesthetic, but he does play, subtly so, with proportion and silhouette from season to season. This offering had real depth and more warmth and modesty than the designer has pursued in the recent past. You might compare his ideas about how women want to dress now to those behind The Row or old Celine. In a town filled with bright and bubbly prints, Tan’s namesake label stands out for its well-executed tailoring and wearability in the real world.
