Caro Jost and Tom Rebl
Walter Storms Galerie – Maxvorstadt

This is the first collaboration of artist Caro Jost and designer Tom Rebl. Both creatives merged their artistic approach and created the workwear inspired capsule collection ´SEE YOU`. The unique and hand-made pieces will be presented in a fashion show at the Walter Storms Galerie and are afterwards available in Tom Rebl's flagship store.
The guerilla show is supported by live music from Ubu Imperator.
Fashion designer TOM REBL, born in Germany, studied at the prestigious Central St. Martins College in London before he opened his first headquarter in Italy. Tom´s curious mind is reflected in his collections, which are influenced by his passion for music, design and contemporary art. With authenticity and profound research, Tom led his brand to international recognition, with a great number of followers within the world of celebrities and musicians such as Green Day, Justin Bieber, Sharon Stone, Billy Porter, Luis Fonsi, Joe Jonas, Adam Lambert, Gianna Nannini, Jorge Gonzalez, Papis Loveday, etc.
Since 2022, the TOM REBL headquarter is based in Munich, where he also runs a flagship store and creative lab in Munich´s prestigious Rathaus.
CARO JOST appropriates traces, foreign archival materials, found objects or memories, which she transforms into autonomous art works of both autobiographical and social relevance. For her, text is virtually a working material and at the same time a strong reflection of the „Zeitgeist“ and our society. In 2000, while studying art in NYC, Caro started to build up her own personal archive and since then she has been collecting the material for her works on worldwide trips to historical sites, artists' studios or their archives. Her works are included in numerous public collections, such as most recently the AkzoNobel Art Foundation, Amsterdam and the Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus Munich.
For the ´SEE YOU` capsule collection Caro has used selected quotes and statements from her recent series of works.
