  • INTO SMITHEREENS PT 2

    Furthermore the collection is conceptualising the connection in between garments, accessory and body and suggests an alternative way to the use of leather. All garments are carefully crafted, each leather band cut separately and every knot hand-tied. / I also took inspiration from traditional folkloristic garments from my birthplace Romania and the artisanal context they are produced in. This can be seen in the use of material, choice of technique, as well as the design of the garments. / "Into Smithereens" may also show, that historic crafts or the common use of the material leather can still be explored in unforseen ways. By picking up on traditional approaches and combining loose ends in unusual ways, new solutions can be created, that go beyond previous references. / Photography: Mikkel Bo / This collection was kindly sponsored by Bodin Joyeux.
