About This Collection
GENDERLESS COLLECTION – VOICE WITHOUT TRACE
The voices are lingering around us from the distances in the dark. Real or Imagination? They seem questioning our actions, our morals, and our sins. No one seems like to believe with our answers. The voices control upon us. We feel panic. We feel anxious. We feel insecure. We feel vulnerable. Finally, it is reaching to our limits. Will you fall off the cliff and be crashed into dust? Or stay true to your own and embrace the words of the opinions with brave? Perhaps, the lights are just going to show through the thick clouds sooner.
Vincent Li dived into a surreal journey. The voices are shifting between the hallucination and the reality. Sometimes the voices are descriptive, are judgmental, are arguing, or are extremely harsh. Sometimes the sound of the voices surrounding us is familiar. They could be the talking from our closer and loved ones. Illusion involves distortedly misinterpreted real perception. We feel uneasy, feel depressed, feel lonely, feel scared, and feel hopeless. This a dark, and traumatized experiences.
The design process always starts with exploring the depths of a mental illness and transforming it into what some may see as a piece of wearable art. The collection is dark, mysterious, and sensual, through the distorted shapes and sound-wave like details. The designer uses the shades and textiles of BLACK COLOURS in a sustainable wool collection, by adding Satin, Silk, Linen, and Crepe. The digital Printing Artworks are also created in moody dark palette, and some of them are digitally printed on wool. The collection balances the heavy elements with the sleepwear feelings silhouette, to convey the comfort and ease.
