This collection acts as a visual narrative of the descent into darkness, taking inspiration from the works of Dante Alighieri’s Inferno of the Divine Comedy. Heavy layering and chains throughout the collection reference the many circles of Hell, increasingly creating more restraint, depth and complexity with the ability for the silhouette to be changed and manipulated by the wearer to control their narrative. The dark and gothic themes of this collection carry through each look as an explication of duress and fear of the unknown.
