why not anymore
questioning the known
rethinking fashion

Flat, odd-looking yet very recognizable pieces redefining the boundaries of menswear. A collection that is puzzling with elements of the things we wear every day.

A clothing collection based on the archetypal silhouette and fabric off former menswear. Challenging the contemporary “cut copy paste” culture and industry. Searching for the known. The known that can give grip in our cut-copy-pasted context. Making a ‘still’ in time, reflecting on menswear in general. Keeping in mind and overviewing the history of menswear.
