This womenswear collection is conversely inspired by male boxing culture.
In an age of gender fluidity the collection plays with the stereotypical gender opposition of an earlier age. Established tailoring techniques rub up against more experimental fabrication and construction techniques.
The neat silhouette of a 1940s women’s costume is contrasted with the bulk and muscle of the star boxer’s body of the same age.
Inspired by my grandparents, the tailored femininity of my grandmother depicted by tailored separates, contrasts with bulging latex inflatables reminiscent of the muscle of her prizefighter husband, himself a stylish dresser.
