Collection – Between Sense and Sanity

“Between Sense and Sanity”, a concept devised by Nataša, speaks to us on several levels – as a description of the profession of fashion designer, or the direction that Squat is taking in its activity. Designers at Young@Squat offer their own answers to questions being raised nowadays about contemporary fashion: Can anything still surprise us, touch us? What is the correct vision for today? Are we going to be courageous enough? Are we going to use the right dose of common sense, to turn an idea into a trend or a collection? What are the limits, where do we draw the line? Or has the line – between senses and sanity – nowadays become extinct?
Between Sense and Sanity is a bold, daring, free and cool contemporary mixture of visions of 12 young individuals. It is replacing local tradition in the global context by combining craft with modern techniques and expertise in textile design with a strong fashion forward vision.
