Introducing Caleb Edwards (Archive Collections)

The mastermind behind Archive Collections is 26-year-old multi-artist art collector, Caleb Edwards @archivecollections based throughout the world, it’s tricky to reach him. Opportunely, Vanity Teen found a chance to have the interview.

 

How long has Archive Collections been around?

CE: “AC is relatively new. I’d say two years but it has been a vision for about five.”

 

What is the collection’s targeted audience?

CE: “My collection is targeted to reach creatives within the artistic community and creative industry (such as fine art, fashion, music, and film.)

 

What brought on your desire for the collection?

CE: “That’s a good question. I guess my vision behind what I’m doing will always be my biggest drive.”

 

Do you travel much? How do you decide where to go next?

CE: “Yeah, I’m always moving and that’s cool. It may sound weird, but the universe knows where to be.”

 

Are there any designers that may specifically be your favorite?

CE: “Raf Simons, Yohji Yamamoto, and Rei Kawakubo are my favorite designers. I’ve been collecting them for years and I have a deep connection to their work.”

 

What do you plan to achieve with the collection?

CE: “Well, I designed this company with the intent of including others to a world influenced by my lifestyle. I wear these pieces daily and they are art to me. It’s entirely more than the collection that matters; building a platform that incorporates artists to use these garments with a vision of their own makes what I’m doing bigger than me. Although I have a passion for clothes, collecting and making fine art has been influential on the journey and everything intertwines from that.”

 

Would you care to explain the process of gathering a piece?

CE: “For every piece I’ve accumulated, the process is never the same. Most of my collection is bought privately through collectors, so relationships are key.”

 

Is there a particular piece so rare you have to get?

CE: “Let’s just say I would like to buy Raf Simons’s personal archives. ;-)” 

 

Would you ever design fashion? If so, will the collection be used for inspiration?

CE: “I don’t think that will happen anytime soon. It’s something that takes a lot of time and I’m passionate about other things in my life right now. The collection will indeed always be an inspiration and forever be a part of me.”
