PFW: KIDILL Fall Winter 2022.23 Collection

With FW22 Collection, Kidill pays tribute to American writer Henry Darger


Fashion brand KIDILL presented their Fall Winter 2022.23 Collection, that celebrates the work of American writer, novelist and artist Henry Darger, on January 18th, as part of the ongoing Paris Fashion Week. The Outsider Collection explores an idea that Henry lived with both his feet set in reality and non-reality, living simultaneously in the real world and insanity. The collection honors the lifestyle of an outsider who acts on ones own faith without the influence of the social ideals.


The episode filled with violence, sexual oppression, crooked religious elements, the children grows in the vivid coloration of the blooming nature. Here I feel the duplicity of the piece of one man’s dissatisfaction, distress and solitude, perhaps the expression of being unconscious of these states. Darger probably felt the urge in expressing the kingdom of the world of unreality, a clarification of a fantasy using his lifetime to express. – Designer Hiroaki Sueyasu


In the Realms of the unreal, composed with over 15,000 pages and hundreds of illustrations completed in 43 years, where 7 innocent girls goes on a rescue mission of children from the evil Grandelinia army , the battle of the Vivian girls holding male symbolism is where the main principle story lays in on this collection. with cooperation of Kiyoko Lerner, wife of Nathan Lerner, the founder of this Darger’s posthumous work, the icons portrayed in the fabrics and the graphics, and key palette of Darger’s characteristic of subdued purple and yellow defined in a vivid and psychedelic impression. The brands existing tailored items to collaborated knits and the grasp of KIDILL’s sexual ambiguity projected on the MA-1 and the dress shirts.” – from KIDILL
