The aestheticization of horror: Drowned Culture describes in a thought experiment a surreal, future-fictional reality in which the rising sea level is dragging humanity into the water. A nightmare construct is formed from a mythological and scientific perspective. In this alternate reality, the collection reflects the life and culture that adaptively evolved in the depths of the sea. A sort of futuristic Atlantis is a critical statement on climate change, in which dark visions become an exaggerated reality.
The collection is an interaction between the language of forms and techniques of couture and represents the reality and the future through tailoring. The clash of forms and contrasts in silouettes originates out of the brands design DNA.
