Hooligan Poetry

Collection autumn/winter 2009

Holy Bleach evokes a lucid dream of unleashed exposure and seductive dressing. Inspired by the roaring 20's, one is captured by an era of skin, cocktails and cobbled streets. Heels, boots and hats add humour and character to the collection; whilst intricate knitwear and recycled fur flaunt luxury.

Fur is re-interpreted, revealing the soul through a delicate translucent lining, creating a dialogue of contrast between power and vulnerability. Opposites attract. It is not about escaping, but embracing the world by giving yourself fully. Helmut Newton winks at us from around the corner.
