Among 12 RUN collections from 1995 to 2001, experimental fashion designer and artist Susan Cianciolo previously showed a home collection as RUN 11 in autumn 2000. Yukata-inspired kimonos and pillows, big cushions and quilt fabrics, items for living shown during the New York and Paris collections.
Kiva Motnyk, who used to assist Susan at the time, is the founder of Thompson Street Studio – together they reignite the RUN HOME collection. Thompson Street Studio designs and crafts objects and interiors with a focus on experimental textiles. It explore connections between art, industry and nature. In Susan Cianciolo's own words: “For a long time, I have always used recycled fabrics for making clothes. My policy is that already-existing things are beautiful. I will have the same policy for my home collection. The collection includes kimonos, quilts, cushions, tapestries and furniture and more. There is a saying, ’the home is where the heart is’. I finally understand what it means. Recently my home is my studio as I am looking after my child. It means living, art, meeting with people, gatherings, eating, get all together." The RUN HOME Book is published on occasion of the RUN HOME Collection at Ralph Pucci in New York, December 2014, by the good people at Nieves (Zurich).
