The collection ‘Who is the dreammachine?’ is the search for the influence of the interaction between human beings and space. What happens in the space between space and human kind? How does our surrounding influence our mood, our actions, experience and behaviour? What can we hide and what can we reveal? The woman of my collection is both female and male. It is more about being a being by discovering and uncovering different parts of the body. Sharpness cutting through softness, re-drawing the line of sensuality, craftsmanship and the casualness of luxury.
Silhouettes are cut in two pieces and put together again. Everything is turning around or moving to one direction. As if the person is twisted by its own personality and personal space.
The collection is also about the search for our basic needs in the future. How will we play with luxury? To me it is a clash, resulting in a luxurious utility. A love for individuality and distaste for mass. It is my personal goal to recreate the curiosity of things happening all around us, as well as the way we experience and share this experience as an individual.
