“it is fatal to be a man or woman pure and simple; one must be woman-manly or man-womanly... some marriage of opposites has to be consummated.”
The Insatiables is a knitwear collection with a conceptual focus on the designer growing up as an androgynous boy. The ambiguous feeling of a space in-between is explored with fading patterns and ombre fabrics. Further exploration of traditional menswear shapes that bear more feminine features, such as kilts and oxford bag trousers, have also informed the collection’s style and silhouette.
Reflecting on the current mood within youth culture and society on gender roles and a hedonistic life style, The Insatiables is the designer’s take on the demimonde, quoting from The Dreamers by Gilbert Adair. In collaboration with Rahel Pfrommer on woven textiles and jewellery design. This collection is sponsored by Loro Piana.
