2019 AW No Longer／Not Yet
The Italian philosopher Giorgio Agamben wrote: "true contemporaries, those belonging to his time next month, are those who are neither fully aligned with The Times nor able to adapt themselves to the demands of The Times. In that sense, they are irrelevant." A good designer must have the ability to separate "passe" from "too soon" to capture the fleeting pulse of a letter. They allow themselves to escape from this moment, from the "here" and "now" to create the coming "present moment".
