part/WHOLE Collection I "Hands of Man" Lookbook
The first collection from part/WHOLE features a range of long sleeve shirts and hoodies with inspiration drawn from Neoclassical architecture and artwork, as well as religious symbolism and sculpture. The collection hints at at a number of different idea deriving from Realism to the work of Jacques-Louis David.
From the Designer: "The Hands of Man collection is a series of case studies and explorations into the symbolism and implied meaning behind hand gestures and movement within religious contexts as well as with anatomical representation throughout the history of European artwork. The part/WHOLE lens intends to “zoom-in” and abstract a piece of something that is often found within a larger situation or context. The graphics put a framework around a specific moment in time and allow the viewer to “complete” the image."
