DE METRY SS21 THE KRIARITSI PROJECT
Over the course of a workshop on Screen Printing on Fabric at Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design in London, De Metry experimented with fabrics and studied the preparation of screens for exposure, the mixing of pigments along with inks, as well as the art of printmaking. These techniques enabled him to gain a much deeper understanding of his work, master his way of conduct and find his own artistic fingerprint.
This internal journey of creative growth led him to design a series of limited edition geometric prints. Sustainability, memory, and identity fuel the pattern-filled collection. De Metry captures the SS21 campaign on a road trip around Kriaritsi, Halkidiki, Greece, one of the few places that has maintained an atmosphere of a natural reserve, which is beautifully complemented by sumptuous sea landscapes and panoramic views on the islands Lemnos and Agios Efstratios.
