Shinrai – Japanese for trust, confidence, reliance.

This collection explores darker tones of the human psyche, questioning our relationships with one another and with ourselves, incorporating differing degrees of opacity and transparency, much like our dealings in romantic love.

How much do we really know a person? What are their motivations? When the storm hits, can we rely on their presence?

Visual motifs of tying, binding and fastening (all symbols of trust) repeat throughout the range via industrial hardware, waist ties, belts and sturdy metal fasteners, contrasted with diaphanous linen jersey, silk and bamboo. Leather accent pieces and heavy knits create a sense of security around the body in contrast to the ephemeral, less secure feel of open-weave fabrics, playing out the never-ending battle

between trust and doubt.
