Sawa Takai FW2013
Sawa Takai explores deliberate layering through addition and subtraction. Engineered melton wool double-paneling functions as protective sheaths symbolizing strength and concealment. These heavy layers are contrasted by removed panels and split seams in soft flannel revealing interior linings and representing vulnerability and exposure. Together these themes play on Takai’s reflections on metropolitan women who must preserve their inner tenderness while projecting strength to the world to survive.
So, is this close to the truth now, do you think?
The irony, of course, is that the same people who think this way tend to want women to be good only for sex. There’s no winning.
Y’know, I never thought I’d reblog a comic by Tom Preston of all people, but this comic and its commentary are pretty much accurate.
Damn, America. You cray.
