Imagine yourself in an old house with all the furniture still in place but all covered in white blankets. Then slowly you start to bring down the blankets and a completely different world starts to unfold. The magic that surrounds you when all the dust is flying around and the sun is sneaking through the curtains and everything starts to come alive in a way that never have been changed.

The translation of this feeling to clothes is: I used very hard coated fabrics in combination with very fluid jersey’s also jacket’s completely lined with horse hair so it comes out stiff as a board. It’s about the contrast between hard forms and fluid covers.
