WORDS BY THE AUTHOR / The BOŽENA collection deals with inheritance. I reconstruct the estate of my grandmother Božena based on the stories about dresses she wore and which do not exist anymore. I connect grandma´s descriptions to the expression in my clothing style and this way, I create an inheritance for future generations. The models are also based on characteristic features of my grandmother. The collection is influenced by an ethical and sustainable message and it deals with the issue of decomposability. I research differences between things with and without an emotional bond. I think about the conservation of the clothes and I subsequently choose the right materials for that.

Mikhail Ermakov and Dahlia Kurmanguzhina, the self-titled “digital fetish artist couple”, are relationship goals in more ways than one. In the interview below, the duo talks about the organic mutuality and reciprocity of their creative processes, the touchingly introspective and respectful way of co-creating that was cultivated with immense care, Slavic folklore, and more. Get lost in their shiny, alluring, and squeaky world.
“Complexity isn’t always necessary for impactful design.” Being a Swiss citizen of Vietnamese descent, Duc Siegenthaler has been navigating the ebb and flow of blending in and standing out since childhood.
