After celebrating the first HAUS of Dreamers event with a unique evening of immersive performances in the heart of Venice, on May 22nd, Golden Goose presents its fifth and final Dreamed By collection – within its first HAUS of series Dreamers – featuring actress and singer-songwriter Suki Waterhouse, creating an immersive takeover of London’s iconic Browns store.
HAUS is a global platform for the culture and free expression of creativity of the brand’s Dreamers community. A place that unites creatives of different disciplines, identities and backgrounds, which establishes its roots in Marghera, the industrial port of Venice. With HAUS of Dreamers, a global event series, Golden Goose brings the physical experience of HAUS beyond its Marghera headquarters and to key destinations around the world.
For the first edition of HAUS of Dreamers in Venice, Golden Goose has selected five world-renowned multifaceted artists from different fields: Fabio Novembre, Quannah Chasinghorse, Dr. Woo, SUNMI and Suki Waterhouse. The brand asked each artist to reinterpret the classic Venetian icons, creating unique limited edition collections. Each artist has created a shoe, a ready-to-wear garment and a unique object linked to their Venetian experience.
Through a series of Golden TV episodes,”The Dreamers’Way””, the brand tells the story of each artist through their places and communities, in an authentic way, inspiring future generations of dreamers. The series explores each artist’s life, their origins and what shaped them into the person they are today. Over the course of the episodes, we discover new elements of each artist, their passions and sources of inspiration every day.
In the Dreamed by Suki Waterhouse collection, composed of three pieces, the artist draws inspiration from her performance for the HAUS of Dreamers event, where the entrance to the location was accompanied by images of Venice she took, which revealed his personal perspective of the iconicity of the city immortalized through his lens. Over the course of the evening, the images of each guest taken by the artist were gradually affixed to an installation of metal poles emerging from a body of water, recalling the wooden briccole that support the entire city of Venice.
The first item in her collection frames that moment exactly: a limited edition signed photograph, 1 of 20, taken by the artist herself that captures the essence and soul of Venice.
Accompanying the Venetian collector’s piece is a sleeveless t-shirt that takes inspiration from the artist’s casual and glamorous style. The tailored top with padded shoulders recalls the volume of a classic blazer on which a myriad of round and oval Swarovski crystals in four sizes are hand-sewn with a degradé motif both on the front and on the back of the garment. The collection is completed by a pair of iconic knee-high Wish Star boots embellished with an eagle inlaid on the top: a work of leather art that pays homage to the Western culture that deeply inspires Suki and the brand.
On September 15th, on the occasion of the opening of London Fashion Week, the Dreamed by Suki Waterhouse collection will be celebrated through an exclusive takeover of the iconic Browns location in London. Starting from that same date the collection will be available on www.goldengoose.com and in some selected stores around the world.
