The fascination started in trying to find why someone would ever feel so attached to an item of clothing. What makes them obsess over it? Why would they make sacrifices for something they couldn’t have instantly? Perhaps they find it rewarding to work hard for that piece?
The collection was never intended to be something that didn’t resonate. There has been an extreme pressure to create ‘newness’ in uncertain times, however the act of being able to anecdote and to be able to tell the next chapter of the story has never been lost.
Constant searching led to amicable feelings towards a certain colour that resonated, or a memory and an experience. The colours feel quite primary but this time there wasn’t too much ‘compromise’. Stains of orange, dirty purple, military khaki and acidic mustard yellow came in pairs. Each look had to follow one another in synchronicity. The silhouette is soft, modest perhaps, with elements of creative pattern cutting, slashing a shirt’s form, imitating an apple pastry. Solemn tailoring is stripped away and is concluded in vibrant offcuts from the entire collection to create a bold suit, broken into geometrical panels.
