“Acephala’s Autumn/Winter 2015-16 collection “Don’t kiss me” is a homage to French avantgarde photographer and writer Claude Cahun (1894-1954). Cahun (a.k.a. Lucy Schwob) throughout her life and work had surpassed gender binaries and played with the fluidity of identity taking up a male name and living with her partner – Marcel – likewise a female. In the series of self-portraits she was building various forms of “I” taking up a male, child, artists, etc. figure.With the current collection we wanted to translate this elusiveness into the language of fashion. To do so, we have coined a negative definition of woman as: “not-man” and “nolonger-child”, and by getting together what she is not, and turning it into what she might be, sought to blur the traditional binaries of male/female, mature/childish.” -from Acephala
