MISBHV, presents the collection Fall / Winter 2019 at the Kube in Paris. In this MISBHV collection, they traveled through the 1960s and 1990s, taking inspiration from two important events of the European counterculture: The 14 Hour Technicolor Dream and Megatripolis.
The 14-hour Technicolor Dream (1967) was a multidisciplinary festival. It was a revolutionary moment in the history of London psychedelia where artists, poets and musicians (Pink Floyd, Soft Machine, Yoko Ono) were at the origin of the first true youth counter-culture. In the 1990s, Megatripolis was an attempt to relive the mood of that era with the Second Summer of Love and the icons of the first scene of praise. It was in 1995 and Allen Ginsberg, the former Skowyt author, was on the main stage of the Heaven club in London (much to the delight of British techno-neo-hippies).

Both events were an attempt to recontextualize the atmosphere of the time on ideological and spiritual grounds – often through internal travels, meditations and psychedelics.
The ideological and intellectual layer of the collection has been translated into the language of the product through the selection of fabrics, cuts, colors and embellishments. In the collection, M I S B H V refers to the world of sport with opalescent Italian nylons and skating clothing elements, but also folkloric traces such as traditional Polish lace and American hats. Projects created in partnership with Sławomir Pawszak, a painter represented by the BWA Gallery in Warsaw, were also featured in the show. Recycled leather products, such as jackets and trousers, were taken from the artist’s studio in Warsaw with modern tribal paintings, linking the virgin energy of the primitive tribes with the retro-futuristic codes of the 1980s.
