ABOUT THE ‘FIRST AID’ COLLECTION

The ‘FIRST AID’ collection is a series of hats and headpieces that are desirable and troubling at the same time.  Different elements associated with a ‘circle’ of injury, recovery and consolation, are woven together to create a poetic story.
In the design process, diverse visual details, related to healing and sickness, are selected as iconic symbols and clichés, and embedded in every designer piece.
You may recognize design details like leather Band-Aids, red and blue vein-like motifs, silk turbans resembling bandaging and withering red roses.
Some Mexican influences may be sensed throughout the collection, with design details inspired by visual fragments from the life of renowned artist Frida Kahlo: the process of healing and the coping with her injury, her casted body, her esthetics and surreal paintings and of course- her association with flowers and hairstyles.

The conclusion is a sort of new Surreal Reality– A portrayal of earthly authenticity and a heavenly comfort.

There is definitely something conceptual and avant-garde about the collection as a hole. But if you would zoom in and observe closely, you would find a variety of ready to wear and evening pieces that are simply fun to wear.
