New ideals fit in, and old are questioned.

Minna Palmqvist is a representative of norm-breaking designs and inspirations where new ideals takes place and old are questioned. Her new spring/summer collection is named “Intimately Social 12:14” and is imbued with a social criticism against the limited choices women have when it comes to their bodies. Via the collection she highlights the conflict between the socially acceptable female body and the physical, more “fleshy” body that we actually have. Feelings about the friction are manifested through the clothes which symbolizes how we wish we looked like and how we try to hide what we have. The collection also contains some nice coats made from organic wool which is worth mentioning. More here.
