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.
