Life after Catwalk was a collaboration between Studiomama and Marc by Marc Jacobs, in which Studiomama had the opportunity to give new life and value to waste fabric left over from the fashion line’s previous seasons’ collections.
Studiomama created a limited-edition of the Re-Imagined collection comprising a sofa, a daybed, four chairs and footstool all upholstered in Marc by Marc Jacobs fabric.
Based on the Life After Catwalk chair and upholstered in a fabric originally intended for a day dress, the one-off Mirror Chair features a mirror embedded into a rotating backrest in an unusual twist on the traditional chair, table and mirror vanity set.
The chairs were shown in Marc by Marc Jacobs flagship stores in Milan, to coincide with the city’s annual Salone furniture fair, and New York during ICFF and NYCxDesign – and the Mirror Chair was exhibited as part of Wallpaper* Handmade during Milan Design Week. The FT’s How To Spend It called the collaboration ‘a veritable style coup’ and Yatzer named it among its ‘Best of New York Design Week’.
