This collection is built on a sense of freedom and self expression; to approach and challenge society’s rules of traditional masculinity and open up new definitions of what it means to be a man. It is for a man who takes risks with wearing something he may not be used to and who is not afraid to embrace his sensitivity. A man that is proud to be different and stand out of the crowd.
The inspiration for this project is the desire to show the result of stepping beyond one’s comfort zone; like the feeling one might experience when skydiving. This reaction might be anxiety, fear, worry, happiness, and relief all at the same time.
Each piece of the collection is a limited edition, unique in that all textiles used have been hand-made to create a feeling of delicacy and softness. These are qualities often considered not to be masculine. Throughout this collection, hand-woven and hand-dyed techniques has been utilized to transform each textile to create a feeling of intimacy.
