The collection ALL THE NOTHING THAT WILL REMAIN proposes a de-westernisation of mass-produced discarded garments and textiles, upcycling them into a hybrid aesthetic between Africa and the West.
Few years ago, Kouto started collaborating with recycling center Texaid in Switzerland, collecting waste garments, textiles, and unusual materials, to be deconstructed and then reconstructed into high luxury items.
The collection focuses on sustainable and environmental design systems in the creative process, mixing upcycling, couture technics and crafts on three different main layers: prints, embroidery and weaving.
