“What made [the houses] look strange it's hard to say, but that was the first thing I felt when I saw them. My reaction was a lot like what we feel from attempts to draw unreality in a pleasant way. It occurred to me that this was what you might get if Walt Disney did an animated version of a Munich painting.”
Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Woods
The atmosphere derives from a world found in the books, written by Haruki Murakami. In the books of Murakami there is often one or many underlaying stories, which disassemble what we thought we knew and makes the unreal seem familiar.
The collection creates a visual edition of this world and the feeling created in me by the stories. In the clothing it is visualized by making wearable clothing that at first sight seems familiar, but also stands out by using many textile details and shapes, that is often placed unexpected in the silhouette. The only sometimes visual parallel worlds is seen in some of the multi- layered silhouettes, whit materials stretching from see trough organza and underwear knitted in sewing thread, to heavy woven wool.
