We live in a generation that constantly blurs reality through social media, that is easily distracted by white noise – a generation in which most suffer from or enjoy attention deficit disorder.
The collection idea came from a series of freehand, abstract illustrations that depict me and my companions. From those illustrations, I lent features to the garments and looks of the collection.
In my collection, you can spot the use of nylons, wax covered textiles, heavy leather and faux leather, alongside metal details. The textile pallet I created together with the patterns developed relay some of my characteristics and the characteristics of the generation I am a part of. The construction and assembly of each look creates a simulation and accentuates the paradox that we deal with, using details such as closing and opening a massive heavy garment with a delicate string, or underwear worn as an accessory.
