by Yoko Tsuno, Nora Hansen and Maeve O´Neill
Drawing inspiration from Bayer and Monsanto’s ambitions to merge, business partners and collaborators Yoko Tsuno and Nora Hansen have designed a series of active wear. In a public statement 2016 German pharma giant Bayer and American agriculture company Monsanto made public their ambitions to merge, under the project title ‘Advancing Together’. The new pieces are an addition to Yoko and Nora`s already existing collection and label yokoxnora.
Following the theme of ‘Advancing Together’ artist Maeve O´Neill, longstanding partner in creating a visionary aesthetic for the label, has curated a soundscape for the evening. Looking forward to seeing you for some fashion and fun!!
Advancing Together is a collection of wearables commissioned for this launch by changing room.
