Dropping a double-CD ain't enough these days for artists. Either they must follow-up with a "deluxe" edition of the album that includes pointless remixes and boring video footage, or find other artistic mediums in which to prove their worth. If you're Danish tech-house producer Anders Trentemøller, that means turning to fashion. An announcement from Poker Flat Recordings confirms that the Trentemøller Designer Collection is now available for purchase, through online retailer Conzoom.
Based on the artwork for Trentemøller's recent Audiomatique release, The Trentemøller Chronicles, the line features Anna Rosa Hiort-Lorenzen's designs on a selection of t-shirts, dresses, and other apparel for both men and women. Of course, the best news is that his foray into the world of design is actually quite successful. How many friends do you know who sport a Trentemøller scarf or hooded t-shirt featuring designs as sleek and minimal as the man's music? Ellen Allien's got some competition.
The great Dane will also be headed to Australia shortly, for a selection of live appearances that follow some Europe dates.
The Trentemøller Chronicles is out now.
