Spring Summer 09


For this collection, named Modern Definitions of Momentum, Kim was inspired by film stills of the body transformation genre, and focuses on the moment between what 'it' was before and what 'it' is soon to become.
Fascinated by going after the boundaries of a definite theme such as men's garments, Bakker takes away from the typical virility with all it's cliché's. 
New shapes are born, it seems like gravity is pulling at the clothes. Some designs are falling down like a waterfall, whilst others seem to be torn apart under the pressure. It is the moment where the body and the clothes will lead a life of there own.
It changes in an organic manner.
Shapes are taken out of context and twisted, after which they are put back together.
