Collection was created as homage to one of the designer’s closest friends, deceased in August, 2011. The Fall/Winter 2012 collection by DER METROPOL discusses the impact of the absence which is created by death, be it physical or an analogy with a moment of transition. Finally, it discusses the search for Faith through religious syncretism represented by symbols of Judaism, Oxossi’s bow and arrow and Xangô’s axe from Umbanda, an afro brazilian religion, Saint Francis of Assisi’s tau, and the hexagon, as a reference to beehives and bees, which represent the soul for Muslims
