State of Art SS23

A cherished long-term partnership

DLVS is proud to have been working with State of Art for nearly 25 years. Quite unique in this fast-paced industry. DLVS looked after the visual image of the brand. In addition to that visual language, the agency also facilitated a new brand campaign, including film and stills, with both a model and the much-loved Flemish actor and presenter Tom Waes. It oozes an adventurous spirit.

The State of Art design team works with accomplished trendwatchers. A trend report that’s then translated into colors and silhouettes by the designers, while DLVS comes up with a fitting concept. For this campaign and others DLVS has attributed concept development, art direction and production.

A reflective journey on the road

State of Art SS23 - Atelier

Craftsmanship and iconic designs are at the heart of Dutch menswear label State of Art since 1987. The signature style is refined yet also slightly rugged, effortless and with a sporty touch. As a little boy founder Albert Westerman fell in love with the classic Porsche 1500S Cabrio. It inspired him to keep with a sharp eye for detail and elevated sense of design for his own undertaking in fashion.
