Composing the Performance of Sculptures

The polo shirt, with its strict scheme of short sleeves, buttoned closure and open collar, is juxtaposed with a selection of surreal cubist portraits, themselves oftentimes burlesque assemblages of organic fragments.

The archetypical polo shirt meets cubism.

Expressions

While the collection’s graphic and geometric volumes suggest a sculptor's hand working a 3-dimensional material, all garments are expertly executed in fabric: a pristine white technical piqué with a magnified eyelet structure. Seemingly unfinished hems, primitive volumes and mismatched parts generate a spontaneous, thrown-together look. The effect of rapid improvisation is deceptive however: every seemingly random cut, blotch or chip is meticulously hand finished.
