Die Unruhe in dir und mir, treibt uns voran, reißt uns auseinander.
Erblindend im Gegenüber, du in mir, ich in dir. In erschöpfender Einsamkeit, sich gegenseitig davon rennen.
Im schreienden Lärm kichernde Ruhe finden, du mit mir, ich mit dir. In ihr keimen, sich Mäßigen und Innehalten.
Erdrückende Mauern einreißen und grenzenlosen Raum erfahren, du für mich, ich für dich. Einander wieder wahrnehmen, aufmerksam hinsehen.
Gemeinsam über die Dinge staunen. Ich aus deiner, du aus meiner, wir aus vielen Perspektiven.
Sich selbst mindern und gemeinsam mehr sein, wir in der Welt.Vielfältigkeit entfesseln, Vielschichtigkeit gestalten.
The »cherry picker« refers to the man
who looks to the left and to the right.
The man who cannot be influenced.
The man who does not want to make decisions.
The man who picks out the best of all the drawers.
A permanently rotating process for a constantly changing male role, that has no final solution, but always has to find new ways to give the appropriate clothes for the journey. There is not that one type of man in our society and it should not be one at all. The man takes, what he likes, what makes him perfect, wherein he sees or reflects himself. Above that, his man role is defined. The man doesn’t get dressed, but the fashion is installed on his body. Thereby a new space for interpretations of masculinity is created. It’s not all about wearability, but rather to illustrate the attitude of a new generation of men, everyone can identify with. The unconventional is in the silhouette – the traditional in the fabrics. Conservatism meets informality.

The fashion of the 21th-century shifts more and more asexual.
In the past a culture of the Two-Spirit- People can be found at native Americans. Their social system had four different sexes: man – woman – mannish woman – womanish man. Not till the invasion of the Europeans the social system changed to norms which are valid today. The silhouettes of this collection are inspired by the traditional clothing of the native Americans. The look impresses by a mix of ethnic look and European norm with the requirement that it must be able to be worn by men and women. Native American clothes shall be newly interpreted by European craftsmanship and shall be set into a new modern context.
Not the fashion, but the formative movements of the 60s were influencing this collection. The term « freedom » soars above everything. Freedom of the arts, freedom to explore the outer space. The exoneration from conventions. The youth disengaging oneself from social norms, everyone in his own manner. Sufficient subcultures to arrange have been deve- loped. All of them with the thought of liberty. In this collection forms of the Op-art have been used and transformed by pin-tucks and were draped onto the body. This points out the renunication of conventional cuts. The complexity of the thematic background was the inspiration for everything that was forming the collection importantly.
