Enfants Riches Déprimés
Unisex label Enfants Riches Déprimés is the luxury brand of artist and designer Henri Alexander Levy. His self-described ‘elitist, nihlistic couture’ proposes an unflinching collision of louche first-wave punk attitude and deconstructionist garment design, resulting in one of the most bitter pills available among the contemporary fashion pharmacopoeia. The label’s selection features distressed graphic t-shirts, shredded intarsia knit sweaters, and destroyed denim jeans, with one-of-a-kind vintage leather jackets, painted and embellished by hand at the designer’s Los Angeles studio, serving as the line’s centrepieces. Though tailored with a keen sensibility for how a garment adorns the figure, the works on offer by Enfants Riches Déprimés display their founder’s uncompromising vision for the materialization of confoundingly in-your-face nonchalance.
