COLLECTION AW17 BELLADONNA OF SADNESS
The collection is inspired by the animated movie with the same name. It’s a dark tale of of a young virgin who makes a pact with the devil to become sexually powerful. As her power grows, the men around her weaken and this in the end leads to her ruin.
It’s about the cliché of women being seen as innocent versus sexually strong is as much a contradiction as a symbiosis.

Someone once questioned: Is a world where we don’t love to play, a world worth fighting for? As a new day breaks you first see the beauty as the sun rises, and there is a feeling of hope, expectations and a sense of bliss in the air. Let this be a tribute and a celebration to the world we all would like to live in. A place filled with harmony and peace. Heal the world and let love rule.
