BREAKTHROUGH COLLABORATIONS

Hello, we’re Caroline, a creative agency based in Bristol, UK and, nice one, you’ve found our blog.

We’re driven by breakthrough moments and we believe that often they happen when great minds join forces, so our blog is dedicated to what, we think, are the best collaborations in the world. Some of them involve us, naturally.

If there’s a breakthrough collaboration you think we should be talking about, please drop us a line hello@hellocaroline.co.uk

Last time we were in London, we mixed work with pleasure and took a trip to WALALAxPLAY at NOW Gallery in Greenwich.

Next time, it looks like we'll be heading to Fashion Space Gallery (housed at London College of Fashion) for Fashion Together, an exploration and celebration of collaborations in fashion and the collaborators, rather than the individuals, who really push the industry forward.

Featuring collaborations by Rick Owens and Michèle Lamy, Nick Knight and Daphne Guinness, Shaun Leane and Alexander McQueen, Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren, Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Gareth Pugh and Ruth Hogben, and Thom Browne and Stephen Jones, the exhibition is curated by Lou Stoppard, who says:

“I’m interested in lasting partnerships – the formative, friendships, the unions that exist behind the scenes or the decades-long working relationships that have shaped each participant’s vision and life. These relationships are common across the industry, but their complexity has been under-analyzed. How is credit shared? How is work divided? Is jealousy or ownership an issue? Is there a recipe for success?”

The exhibition coincides with the release of Lou Stoppard’s book, ‘Fashion Together: Fashion’s Most Extraordinary Duos on the Art of Collaboration’, published by Rizzoli, which goes on sale from 17th October 2017

We'll Report back once we've paid a visit...
