A letter from HUMANOID’s founder and creative director
"The inspiration for the capsule collection came from our archives. We went back in time to the beginning of HUMANOID in 1981. Having just finished high school, I started with HUMANOID right away. No time to loose.
With a big interest in fashion I've learnt everything myself – using myself as the mannequin. My first designs were created in front of the mirror. Most ideas came from molding or folding fabrics around myself to discover new ways of wearing clothes. One day, I began to experiment with wearing blouses backwards, since I feel that the back of a woman is the most sexy thing to show. Or I would take that blouse and tried to put my legs through the sleeves, and ultimately ended up creating the low crotch. I like the little faults in patterns which make styles really playful and for example rearranging the button order to create the ‘blub’.
Our dive into the archives have given us inspiration to remakes our favourites styles.”
