Gluttony is a capital vice of excess that speaks to our primordial desire of wanting more. Its overindulgent voracity tells us that enough is not enough. Fashion itself grew from a basic need to clothe our bodies, but is today capitalized on as an extension of our personal identities, an extension of our selves. To this end we corporally embellish with garments, augmenting and jumbling our beings as we dress.
This collection is a manifestation of the permeability and transcendency of bodies and of clothing, where life flows freely through fabric and where beginnings and endings meld. The blurring of lines takes on a realistic interpretation with striped cotton warping into hazy lines. Tulle skirts and free-falling drapes transform the body into artistic visions, while statement sarwal pants take on a larger-than-life existence of their own.
Gluttony’s oversize creations allow you to filter the world’s gaze and manipulate its decoding of you. Through fashion we can hide and reveal, protect and expose, create new meanings of ourselves – new lives.
