Harder Better Faster Strongersummer 2014 — fourth semestercollaboration with Alke Heykes
The 80`s upper class in America - rich, beautiful and sexy… and quite bored. A Scene that could not be more superficial. It’s about intrigues, sex appeal and power.Inspired from the body image to that time and the atmosphere in this class a collection of characters was developed, who shall not caricature the 80s, but display the peculiarity of this idol of a human. While designing we thought of women like Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct and films like American Psycho. Leopard pattern is abstracted into a mille fleur-like textile print. Sunglasses and bold jewellery are completing the collection thought.
