Concept - The word translation means the dislocation in space, the changing of a static body into a dynamic one. Bearing this concept in mind, this collection propels the dislocation of the parts of the garments, such as sleeves and collars into unexpected, unusual places conveying a new approach to these elements whilst keeping their essence unaltered. Bulky structures in organic lines define the collection in a play of colors and shapes. The collection tries to capture the essence of movement, experimenting on organic and circular forms, which are the core of the concept of “translation”.
