Melancholy for the Masses
2008: BA GRADUATION, GERRIT RIETVELD ACADEMIE, AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS
Of all the beautiful moments one encounters in a life: which ones stay with us forever? When all is said and done, which ones are qualified as "unforgettable", and how do these chosen moments stay with us?
In seven sleek silhouettes, this collection explores what time does to us, to our memory, to our clothes. And as waists and necklines drop as gravity takes its toll, buttons are displaced, colours fade, some moments aren't held compulsively any longer, some we let go. What's left might stay with us forever.
