MAX.TAN shares with us the preview of Fall Winter 2016.17 Collection named CLOISTERED. The foundation of the collection is built on combination of two opposites – militarism and religion, featuring asymmetrical cuts in mostly black color pallete.
In the absence of peace, everything ceases to exist. The universal formula of peace remains a divisive issue. Humans believe in the efficacy of two opposite extremes – military and religion, to attain peace. We live in the wold where different ideologies strive for the same ideals. When different beliefs are in search of a common ground, possibilities are endless. Fall/Winter 2016-17 explores the spirit for co-existence in a society’s paradigm of peace. Drawing inspiration from two different sets of uniforms, the collection transcends military and religious norms. Vulnerability is seen between seams secured with hardware tools. Fragility is revealed with an exercised sense of control. A continuous composition of the opposites, it is about the strong and the weak, the pease and the violente, the freedom and the seclusion. – from MAX.TAN
