what is is about___________________________________creating a wardrobe for people who don‘t t into boxes // who push boundaries to create an open minded space for themselves and others // people who give themselves the opportunity to grow by avoiding a clear allocation // this behavior is part of a political revolution located in the private space // in sexuality // in gender // in one‘s personal way of living // this BEHAVIOR excludes judgment // and stands in total opposition to the current political and social development // this development is built upon the theory of fear // upon the construction of we and them //
this collection is a genderless collection. the idea that genderless fashion is, in its biggest possible freedom just doable if you change the system and existing terms. the starting point is to skip gen- der and to focus on the possibilities how different garments work on different bodies. this appro- ach points to the need for solutions in the design itself.
the screen print technique owns a big part in the fabric design of the collection. hand drawn ink sketches developed to patterns. inspired by the novel „watership down“ by richard adams, abs- tract rabbit eyes full of fear staring on top of a classic wool suit fabric. the fabric of the elite. next to it, the checked pattern. if the observer takes a closer look, he/she might see, its a hand written note. inspired by the experiences of the migrants children, the „no_fear“ pattern is a bold sign to not to fear the so called stranger.
the hand knit and the experimental use of traditional knitting techniques like felting, carries the need of timeless design and the rethinking of value in it. the value of traditional craftmanship. the luxury of time itself starts in the making. a wearable image for slow fashion. a wearable image for sustainabilty through making long-life garments.
cork fabric, a renewable raw material produced in europe and a viable vegan replacement for leather is another player in this game. in combination with screen prints it gains a contemporary look.
and then there is the classic white shirt, in this collection the appropriation of the symbol of the elite and the business world, new interpreted in a head to toe outfit. the visible image of integrity.
