Collection spring/summer 2013
ROOTS is Individuals' 13th chapter. This Spring-Summer 2013 collection is the follow-up to the winter collection DUALS and continues the story of Individuals. After the rebellion and social reform comes a moment of contemplation and the cathartic realisation that we must move on. We collect leftovers of the past and rely on our primal strengths again: ROOTS sets a first confident step into a new world.
Weathered fabrics, parts of clothing that accidentally could have been found, and the feeling of a deep-rooted instinct for survival, together create an earthly collection. A collection that consists of different, unexpected combinations in references, material and design. ROOTS’ striding movement from darkness into brightness evokes the necessity and inevitability of moving onwards.
