Poetic Brutality and the Death of a Rabbit
DESCRIPTION OF THE WORK
Poetic brutality and the death of a rabbit is a queer “menswear” collection that show the ambivalence of religious depictions and creates a world of opulence and sexuality with a queer flair.
The collection was inspired by the elements of death and homo-erotism within catholic baroque paintings, such as the work of Caravaggio. Mixed with elements of queer culture, nightlife and fetish.
The core of the collection is Silk based combined with different satins, and latex with accents of leather and Plexiglas.
