About the Collection

American Apparel has collaborated with artist Nathalie Du Pasquier to create a collection of clothing using new prints inspired by Du Pasquier’s work with 1980s design collective, Memphis.

The assortment is comprised of both new and classic American Apparel silhouettes for men and women and is limited edition.

Nathalie Du Pasquier was born in Bordeaux, France in 1957 and has lived in Milan since 1979. She worked as a designer and was a founding member of the Memphis Group.

She designed numerous “decorated surfaces” including textiles, carpets, plastic laminates and some furniture and objects. In 1987 painting became her main activity. Visit for more information about her career.

The Memphis Group was an Italian design and architecture group founded in Milan by Ettore Sottsass in 1981 that designed Post Modern furniture, fabrics, ceramics, glass and metal objects from 1981 to 1987. The Memphis group’s work often incorporated plastic laminate and was characterized by ephemeral design featuring colorful decoration and asymmetrical shapes, sometimes arbitrarily alluding to exotic or earlier styles.
