design + anthropology

Every season the collection drives from different anthropological notions and has different nuances but the person is the same. It is never linear or homogenous but there is always a juxtaposition and a beautiful tension. Designing usually starts a season before based on something I have been reading in a book or an article, or it is a powerful memory. Design is psychology mixed with aesthetics. The important thing for me is to be critical and question the subject. Paying attention to constructions and care. Challenging the norm and people to develop new languages and forms. — Siki Im, Vogue
