The Last Virgin Boys

A collection inspired by the Bescherkind, a traditional girl costume from the Sorbs, a small community in the east of Germany. ‘In the Sorbs culture, they consider the girl wearing this costume to be half bride, half-divine being. She is the oldest virgin in town and this is her transition into becoming a woman. The idea behind this collection is making this girls’ tradition into a menswear collection of boys who are the chosen ones, showing anonymity and sexuality at the same time, searching for a balance between these things. It’s time to switch some roles’.

Tuareg Interpretation

A modern interpretation of Tuareg jewellery. ‘I took basic shapes that reference the Tuareg and produced these in unpractical proportions. The metal pieces felt and looked unfunctional - the challenge was to make them functional again through use of the entire body’.
