Since we are making spring and summer clothing, my thoughts turn to the spring and my personal revolution. The colors summon renewal, they are almost childlike – the pinks, the pristine whites, like crisp hanging laundry. The linen, silk, and cottons feel like a natural bath, as though this collection is a backdrop for our emerging selves. Winter melts and it makes me crave a fresh take. Spring is a new way home, another chance to remake yourself. The idea of a new dress gives you a fresh channel through which to express your imagination, your rebellion, your politics, your love and its struggles.
Clothing is one of the simplest ways we can experiment and liberate ourselves. The simple act of getting dressed changes your frame of reference and how you interact with your own life.
So how can I create a conversation through a dress? Spring is a thaw, it’s a pushing through old soil, waking up your inner bear. Spring lightens your heart and summer ripens you. And part of sprouting is leaving, is struggling to find life and looking for new things, new conversations, new love.
