Ilanio: Art That Works
ILANIO is the brain child of experimental artist Ilan Reuben, and a reflection of his ongoing creative quest. His work examines how clothing both signifies and controls our relationship with our bodies, and the psychological, sexual, social, and spiritual implications for that connection. Reuben put his effort to create a community around his work, he brings it to more people, on a deeper level. To infuse artistic expressiveness in everyday life. ILANIO is a creative space of like-minded ideators and designers. Imbued with the transgressive spirit of its San Francisco roots, it combines the cutting edge with the cosmopolitan. It is a new type of brand based on both collaboration and curation – a concept label.
ILANIO bridges the gap between concept and life. Working with top experts in each category, it brings a fresh eye into existing manufacturing know-hows, to turn its art-sider vision into high-end pieces that work. In this way commodities turned into statements of self-expression. Breaking down barriers between art, fashion, and commerce, ILANIO is a concept label of “art-that-works.”
ILANIO and its audience are part of the same community: the irrepressibly free-thinking fringe that questions social conventions, that refuses to build a one-dimensional identity from off-the-shelf parts. An ever-mutating community that craves new tools for authentic self-expression. A limited-edition-only label, ILANIO invites the beholder to take ownership. ILANIO’s métier is to create art-that-works collectibles.
