AUTUMN WINTER 2016
Better off without you
BETTER OFF WITHOUT YOU
Happiness is a sense of individuality as the world’s definition of what is best may be different from ours. Ironically, we usually let those people keep telling us what happiness is. Nevertheless, we have learned something after reading ‘Bad Apple,’ written by Edward Hemingway. It is a story of ‘Mac,’ an apple and ‘Will,’ a worm. Mac was a good apple by all apples’ standards but the problem was that he and Will were good friends. And for that, Mac was told by many apple fellas that he was a bad apple. Will had this idea that Mac would be better off without him, still, Mac insisted that friendship with Will was all that he needed because he knew he’d rather be a bad apple with Will than a sad apple without him.
Sadly, expectation of perfection is often a trap that we dig for ourselves. How do we even know what other people speak of perfection would be the same thing that makes us happy? Could it be the voice inside us only that can possibly tell what happiness to us is? What to keep and what get rid of for our own term of happiness.
From a profound inspiration to the new season’s collection, KLOSET AUTUMN/WINTER 2016 ‘BETTER OFF WITHOUT YOU,’ projects the story of Mac and Will, including their process of learning through such events and consequences, diluted with the mass concept in the 70’s, where people desired nothing but freedom and happiness. Although, the true happiness of life is a lot more simple than people can imagine these days. Therefore, in this collection, we tried to keep it simple to project the idea of happiness, starts from the patterns, palettes and all details, grounded on simplicity, yet sophisticated. The core palettes we selected were earth tone colors, contrasted with lemon green, shades of yellow and red to scarlet to fresh up the whole look. The bouquets and apples print to complete the inspirational story and brought Mac and Will to life, where the little trick we had on making the worm pop paid off and made Will seem real and alive.
If the war and the entrance to capitalism were the traps to happiness for people in the 70’s, limitless greed and attention with no direction could be the traps to happiness for people in these days.
