MOSAERT: A New Clothing Line By Stromae

View the full lookbook from Stromae's college-inspired new clothing line MOSAERT, a collaboration with Brussels-based studio Boldatwork.

Belgian artist of the moment Stromae, creator of one last year’s most striking music videos and his national team's World Cup anthem, has launched MOSAERT —a clothing line christened after an acronym of his artist name. For his first collection, Stromae (real name Paul Van Haver) collaborated with Brussels studio Boldatwork to develop several colorful patterns and psychedelic prints presented in polos, shirts, cardigans and high socks. "The unisex collection is defined by college-style looks, isometric jacquards and African wax color motifs and printing techniques," states the label. The brand is proudly manufactured in Europe (France, Belgium and Portugal) and only available in limited stocks. The lookbook draws inspiration from old school class photos, we’re sure you’ll enjoy it. MOSAERT is available at Colette in France and Hunting & Collecting in Belgium.
