Opening Ceremony teams up with artist Jonathan Horowitz for a unisex capsule collection

Opening Ceremony has collaborated with artist Jonathan Horowitz for a limited edition capsule collection that pays tribute to the creative possibilities of dots. After all, from Yayoi Kusama to Roy Lichtenstein and from Pop Art to Conceptualism, dots have always played an important role in art history. The small run, unisex collection comprises a tote bag, a field jacket, and a five-pocket denim pants, all featuring the artist’s trademark polka dot on canvas patterns. The collection was inspired by Horowitz’s 590 Dots installation at the Los Angeles 356 S. Mission Road gallery, where the artist asked visitors to paint a perfect 11-inch black dot centered on an 18-inch canvas. The challenge was that they were not allowed to use rulers or pencils; they just had to use paint and a paintbrush.

“In a way, this project is about finding a way to get over being a perfectionist and be okay with imperfection and human limitation,” Horowitz told Opening ceremony. “It’s an impossible task to make a perfect dot, but as I say to prospective dot-makers, if you take the project seriously and really, really try, your dot will be perfect.” The Jonathan Horowitz x Opening Ceremony Fall 2014 Capsule Collection is now available at Opening Ceremony’s online store.
