From the tight grip of masculinity
„Transforming the real world men inhabit requires our collective will to dream anew the male body and being, as a sight of beauty, pleasure, desire and human possibility“ – bell hooks, The Will to Change
The idea for the collection came from my own research into masculinity and the patriarchy. I wanted to better understand the boundary between menswear and womenswear. Corsets and heels became the starting point due to their connection to masculinity and the patriarchy. This collection is an exploration of the line between menswear and womenswear in an attempt to create a space to dream anew the male body and male being.
