As in the children’s drawings, where the proportions are subjective. Where objects or people are represented without thinking about how they really are. Change the proportions of things. Enlarge them and reduce them as you wish. An explosion of shapes that dictates new rules.
The brooch on the sweaters is so oversized that it is no longer the detail, but the protagonist. Garments and accessories as if they were enlarged by a copier. The shoes have stilettos larger than 200 percent, and the result is a game of curved and wide lines, almost like a comic book.
The knitting stitch is giant, almost exploded. So also that of the stitching of jackets and skirts. The micro doll coats, the sweaters; everything is disproportionate. The typical zipped men’s wallet is no longer a pocket accessory, but a mini bag with handles and shoulder strap.
It is the magic of a girl who no longer plays with her mother’s wardrobe, but creates a new one for herself. The lady like becomes a completely personal fun, mixing macro and micro.
