Xénia Laffely introduces us her graduate collection “You won’t have any other icon than me and you’ll eat your father”.
Bearded faces. The father in classic suits and the religious man in ceremonial dress. They have haunted me through the process of this collection. I borrowed some attributes of each one, to build on their ashes a third figure ; my own icon, the unworthy son, rebellious, flamboyant. The witness of my emancipation.
I designed him a new skin, the beards have become prints, interspersed with embroidery of or- thodox cassocks and woolen masculine suits. Then cut along the lines of classical suits. And I colored the scarves, leggings and jackets with Stabilo, to bring him to life. A graphic and sentimental character, wacky and unpredictable appeared. My own icon
This collection is all about the freedom to dress up. Martin Asbjørn takes you back to the nightlife of 70s disco scene where you dressed up for each other and preached the movement of sexual liberation and freedom of individuality.
