Description:

Attempt of an one handed embrace. The design of the top is reminiscent of a half straitjacket as well as the pants are executed only one-sided. For the realization, old records were used which I had collected in my residence in Japan even before the pandemic. Holding the old paper in my hand reminds me that I haven’t had the opportunity to return to my friends and my favorite place for a long time. In the lonely landscape of Finland I became even more aware of this longing, which is why I created these garment for a half hug. Torn and yet immobile, the user of this clothing feels protected and naked at the same time.
