Mercedes-Benz Young Classics Revisited, a Recollection Quartett

For the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin, MoMu, the Fashion Museum in Antwerp and Mercedes-Benz, invited Belgian art director Frederik Heyman and 4 fashion designers - Bernhard Willhelm, Peter Pilotto, Henrik Vibskov and Mikio Sakabe - to create 4 installations.
At the heart of each installation stands a Mercedes-Benz Young Classics. From these cars from the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, 4 cars were selected. For each of them, photographer and artist Frederik Heyman created a unique decor and used it only once in a photographic illustration. Humor and a surrealist visual vocabulary are part of his artistic signature. His decors are built completely by hand, in collaboration with a team of sculptors and artists. The 4 fashion designers have added their own visions to the installations.
