ONAR x Actress
ONAR collaborates with British electronic musician Actress on his latest release 'Karma & Desire' on Ninja Tune.
The ONAR x Actress collaboration can be divided in two parts: A series of unique pieces exclusively for Actress and the limited capsule edition of ONAR x Actress collaboration that will be available on Actress site. The designs of the exclusive series are based on the celebrated ONAR Cyber Mask as well as the ONAR Mens’ Jesse Coat in wool and repurposed leather. The pieces were made on demi-couture practices in silver, black and white.
The ONAR x Actress Capsule Collection consists of streetwear pieces: leather bucket hats, t-shirts and face masks designed around Actress’ Unseen Werk silhouette. The pieces are crafted responsibly in Greece of sustainable fabrics. The face mask is antibacterial as silver ions are added to the fibre, making it ultra breathing and comfortable to wear. The ONAR x Actress Bucket Hat is introduced in a limited edition, crafted in nappa leather as well as in a canvas version with a leather detailing.
The Karma & Desire album is accompanied by a short film directed by Lee Nachum. The film is starred by Yves Tumor and Zsela who are wearing ONAR signature coat Marlene.The collaboration has been a very organic process as music is an inseparable part of Irene's design process. “I’ve been following Actress for a long time and R.I.P from 2012 was a very important album to me, I was about to launch the label then. Listened to it on repeat so honoured to work on the Karma & Desire album with Actress.”
