It all began in 2014-2015, titled “Selfie Worker”. This concept was introduced to influence research for new technologies in line with the demands at the forefront of our time, resulting in a self-analysis.
I have reached my turning point; each of us has a dark side that represses our true essence. Through introspection, we can bring out the best versions of ourselves, overpowering fear and insecurity, hence the metaphor of the cracks where powerful Light, which signifies love and appreciation, escapes. In this long journey, equally important were the contributions of Alberto Burri and Willy Verginer, having enabled me to liberate my feelings.
The collection “Blinding Perce” is nothing if not a strong and concise message; the demolition of the walls of mistrust. Leather is modeled in this concept, and contrasts are made through cracks and reflective prints. Zippers and buttons, however, altering. Heads can completely switch targets, choose who to be, depending on one’s perception, for light, regardless of life’s circumstances, will always dominate the dark.
“Blinding Perce” began through the inspiration I’ve acquired from biker subcultures, having observed their passion for sportswear. I wanted to express my appreciation for their use, and renew classic pieces. What was only abstract thought is now material visible to everyone. A mix of technology, innovation, and tradition. Every idea shines through unique light. I also was inspired by the apparel that formed the history of the rocker subculture (t-shirts, jeans, leather jackets, biker boots, etc). The reflecting materials represent the connection between technology and aesthetics, and the clear desire to create leather pieces which, in a review, Willy Verginer and Alberto Burri state are both functional and glamorous.
