The designer who loves referencing his pieces was inspired by the iconic two-tone British Ska singer Pauline Black of The Selecter, as well as the revolutionary work of Dada artists Sophie Taeuber- Arp and Hannah Hoch.
The influence of the Pauline is evident in the leather embellished trilby hats worn in the lookbook and fishnet gloves that make an appearance.
The rich textures of some of the pieces are reminiscent of Hannah Hoch’s Ohne Titel collage for the Dada Africa show which comprised 120 works; rare archival material, and a collection of indigenous artefacts from which the European artists borrowed originating not only from Africa but also from America, Asia and Oceania.
