About the collection:
The Spring/Summer 2018 collection follows a Stockholm Syndrome series of events built on the premise that masculinity has captured itself, positioning men as both villain and hostage.
The collection plays with masculinity by confronting themes of dominance, sexuality, and gender identity.
There are playful moments of criticism (exposed male cleavage in a dress or flouncy, pearl-embroidered chaps) and whimsical twists on restraint, like sleeves that cover the hands or a top that constricts the wearer from moving their arms altogether.
Our goal is to create a brand that is inclusive of a diverse range of masculine identities.
