'But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.'
The way portraits were painted in the early northern-european renaissance gave painter, subject and viewer a distorted sense of reality. Whether they realised it or not.
This collection changes the way wearer and viewer experience reality by (partially) eliminating senses and movement. Looking, and being looked at, influences the way the object is proceeded between anonymity and recognition.
Combining the cleanness of their devotion through lines and materials, with the awkwardness of the features through hand-stitched edges and overall finish.
Simplifying these historical shapes and emotions translated into pieces that balance the scale of devoted faith and sexual tension.
