Daniel Arsham shot to art-stardom with a concept he calls “fictional archeology,” using materials like sand, selenite crystals and volcanic ash to render objects from the recent past as eroded relics from a lost civilisation. Populating his postmodern Pompeii are icons of pop and consumer culture — from Ninetendo’s Game Boy to Pokémon characters to the Ferrari from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off — recast as timeless artefacts.

The approach has helped make Arsham fashion’s go-to artist. In the last five years, the multidisciplinary creator — whose work spans art, architecture, design, film and performance — has collaborated with the likes of Dior, Tiffany, Rimowa, Adidas and Uniqlo, often lending their products the gravitas of geological time, as well as limited-edition buzz.

Now, Arsham is launching a fashion label of his own, Objects IV Life. Its debut drop, a collection of unisex workwear, will land today at Kith’s Paris flagship and online. The clothes reflect Arsham’s personal style. “Things I would wear in the studio,” he said. “I designed them for me.”
