In the past ten years, Ill-Studio has collaborated with some of the most regarded names in fashion such as Chanel, Supreme, Nike, Lemaire, Colette, Louis Vuitton, Hermes to name a few. In the realm of music their projects range from directing videos for Tame Impala, being creative directors of cult band Soulwax, or being invited by the Paris National Opera to imagine a dance performance.
