A situation. A non-static moment of observation, interpretation, creation. Bird on a Wire questions human interactions, moments of solitude and feelings. The outfit on your body, the beauty of light, the sounds of footsteps.

"Fashion is like a supermarket trolley into which foodstuffs, tampons and paperbacks have been placed neatly. Or like an encyclopedia, where God and Gum sit happily alongside each other. And so the things one gets excited about now are doomed to plummet into the ranks of the 'uncool'." Yohji Yamamoto

So how can fashion, a trivial vain and ephemeral medium, that disintegrates every season, recognize the everlasting beauty of life? How can it interpret what it so clearly works against?

" Fashion contrives an extravagant paradox: fashion is a system of meaning designed with the sole purpose of destroying the meaning it so beautifully constructs." Roland Barthes.

Simply because it bathes in it. Bird on a Wire is a brand that strives to connect those two opposing worlds to create products that are everlasting, by dipping them into the beauty of life.

Wearable garments designed from the light of an autumn day, the stretched muscle of a dancer, the elegance of leaves and the energy of desire.
