Since 2007, my art in belts have impacted a global audience; creating community and institution. By 2022 the same unorthodox process that fuels my unpredicted campaigns becomes available to explore;
BLACK PAINT >> I start in the dark in a black environment to communicate and accelerate my creative process, to drive imagination, without being influenced by surroundings; bringing physical form to an idea. My 'black paint' discipline is expressed through dress code, objects, walls and furniture. Begin without light to find it, carve out imagination.
BUSKERS >> The mod-driven melodies that inspire CM® designs, music is a high percentage of the time where ideas start. CM® BUSKERS feature fresh talent and established icons with performances and special collaborations; exploring artists who have contributed to the unique art and identity of CM® belts.
CM® >> Vision, concept, reinvention and regeneration of the belt game; working with generations of artists, photographers, designers, musicians, filmmakers and writers who defied conventions and contributed to the unique art and identity of CM® belts. CM® does not release all of its belts at once. Instead, only releases a few handful of buckles or straps at a time; introducing the new campaign of products. Each of these drops occur in the online store and selected retail partners.
WORN PROJECT >> The future of fashion is circular by design and the CM® belts we love never end up as waste. We believe in the unlimited potential of belt design and have an obligation to consider the complete design solution, inclusive of how we source it, make it, use it, return it, and ultimately, how we reimagine it. Return your worn CM® belts for cash back; follow each step in our journey and discover original rare furniture, exclusive artwork and unique objects made from your worn belts. Let's protect the future of design and move to zero waste.
