Muy Marcottage

Muy Marcottage.

Marcottage is a French term used for plant propagation–taking one plant to make another. But it’s also an art term used to indicate a sculptural composition that’s been made using pre-existing elements. In other words, disassembling one thing to create another. Rodin’s “The Fallen Angel” is an example of marcottage.

Initially, I wanted to call my line of reconstructed clothes simply “Marcottage” but one day, while listing to The Kumbia Kings, I decided to add the “muy” meaning “very”. Thus “Muy Marcottage” is the name I’ve given to my reconstructed clothes.
