Paradox Collection

BIO

Paradox, by definition, means the amalgamation of two opposing things happening at the same time, such as the feminine and masculine qualities within the collection. For example the use of delicate lace combined with leather that has been laser cut into referencing a robotic and boisterous illustration onto it. This constant balance of two opposing elements was focal to the collection. 

Initial inspiration were Transformers and later, Snub_23 a graffiti artist from Brighton who displays these huge rigid mechanical beings upon urban buildings. This hugely influenced the collection to the extent of interpreting his work upon the leather. Within the illustrative development - the build up of lines were evident to the extent of using strapping to replace side seams and using military-esque buckles to maintain that masculine element throughout.
