"The appearances of natural objects are in themselves meaningless; the essential thing is feeling – in itself and completely independent of the context in which it has been evoked.” - Kazmir Malevich (painter, pioneer of abstract geometric art, and founder of Suprematism). 

The influence of the century-old Suprematist art movement over modern culture, from art to design and architecture, is significant. Stripping away the political, over-engineered values of the time, Suprematism sought a radical approach to art: one that removed the object and challenged the viewer to engage in “pure feeling.”

Fashion too, when searching beneath the aesthetic, is ultimately about how we feel. 

This accessories story playfully deconstructs the fashion object, then reinstalls its primary features, as if they are part of a Suprematist painting: material, form and texture are translated into geometric shapes on canvas. The series invites the viewer to pause, examine more closely, feel and appreciate elements of reality that today are usually dismissed with a quick swipe.
