Human, interrupted

“Human, interrupted” represents the conflict of having to choose between the procrastinating nature of the human spirit and the necessity of having to go to work every day in order to be able to sustain one’s self financially.
The collection illustrates the bridge found in between two contrasting sartorial options, one being the leisure of having the fabric surrounding the body effortlessly and carelessly creating freedom of movement and the other being the business attire meant to imprison the body in the standards of work appropriate visual esthetics.
The fabrics chosen for this collection are rough, restraining the body’s freedom even if they create the appearance of a free-flowing fabric through drapings and digital prints. The visible stitching (usually found on garments that are work in process) that outlines the details of the clothing enhances the idea of an unfulfilled state of mind, an unfinished Sunday reverie rudely interrupted by the return of Monday. Chromatically, the “Human, interrupted” collection is all white as white represents mental clarity, innocence and nevertheless safety.
All combined into one, it results into the illusion of comfort and the reminiscence of a day spent in the privacy of one’s bedroom wrapped in bed sheets and disclosing one’s true identity thus creating an exaggeration of the transition from a safe personal space to a public one that implies conformation to certain standards.
