Short Synopsis: Rafael Kouto’s contemporary collection titled “A post summer solitary reverie of a rave”, focuses on the escapist daydream of post-pandemic freedom. Trippy patterns, psychedelic and acid prints, reveal a journey into the realm of liberation, self-expression and unconditional togetherness. Rafael Kouto explores the revival of the rave with his new upcycled collection: merging African and Western influences with a psychedelic twist Rafael Kouto, the Swiss upcycling couture brand, releases a limited edition collection titled “A post summer solitary reverie of a rave” in collaboration with the Zurich Silk Association. This collection doubles as a cultural project, aiming to preserve the authentic “savoir faire” of the Swiss fashion and textile industry by situating it in an international and contemporary context. The garments of this capsule collection are crafted using upcycled silk from the textile archive of the Zurich Silk Association ‘Zürcherische Seidenindustrie Gesellschaft’, an association of active and former companies in the Zurich silk industry and one of the oldest business associations in Switzerland.
