CONCEPT

FROM MY SKETCHBOOKS

BODY AS A BRUSH

This collection was inspiered by the prefomance artist Yves Klein, and his idea of using the body as a "brush" when making his paintings. In my concept: instead of a canvas - a white suit.

The patternconstruction took inspiration from Klein's insterest in judo, by inspecting the judo uniform.

Knit texture inspired by Klien's interest in ocean sponges.

FREEDOM

A collection inspired by the escape artist and master of freeing himself: Houdini. Garments that play with closures, openings, ropes, chains and the idea of the body beeing placed upside down.

SOUNDS OF NEW YORK

The main inspiration for the collection was the idea of trying to materialize sounds. Inspired by Michel Gondry's work with materializing beats, I translated the soundwaves of my own field recordings from New York, into garments. Making each garment "sound" as a different area in New York.

A collection made in black wool, merino knit, cotton and corduroy.

A menswear collection inspired by a concept made from three different perspectives:
