  • The key inspiration for the collection has been an idea of a girl in a structure that hasn't got a discernible inside or outside. The challenge of the constructionist yet poetic approach has been the driving force behind the collection.  Keeping the structure of the garment as simple as possible by only making a few cuts in the material and letting the weight of it do the rest, I wanted to achieve effortless feel in a silhouette that would flow together in a single visual experience.
