To me, technique itself is a state of art.
It evolves over time.
It is the unsung hero.
It is beautiful as it is.
People are beautiful as they are.
Tailoring plays a major role in my work. I explore and apply different techniques in order to keep design elements, e.g. functional details and decorations, in harmony. Handcraft such as canvasing, embroidery and other forms of fabric manipulation are also revealed in the collection. But all of them exist because of function. The collection is also meant to push the boundary of men's tailoring.
The silhouette is built on basic shapes, from short to long length and fitted bottom. It is minimal as I have strong will to emphasize that the content of clothes should be over its appearance. It is shown that details of garments are functional prior to be decorative or they coexist. The content of a garment speaks more. And the same rule applies to the people who wear them. A lot of people want to look good too much. But first they should focus on themselves, not the clothes. Clothes can only say limited things. People can do much more.
