CONTRA • DICTIONS


"Here the boundaries meet and all contradictions exist side by side." 
Fyodor Dostoevsky in 'The Brothers Karamazov'.

Inspired by a man who travels the edges of his existence.
The very graphic cuts and patterns reflect his journey and originated in the buildings, bridges and other man-made structures he passed.

 Made using high-tech laser-cutting equipment to turn unconventional materials into wearable pieces, this collection is an exploration into the future of fashion.

Taking a parallel path to the opportunities 3d-printing brings to product design, this technique makes one-of-a-kind, custom garments possible to exactly fit the “consumer’s” size and demands.

A 21st century approach to haute couture.
