SAFE PLACE’’ A/W 22
A SIGNITURE COLLECTION FOR MEN BY SELEN AKYUZ
‘’SAFE PLACE ‘’ FOR PEACE AND FREEDOM…
While listening the electro-pop duo Lonasona’s song ‘’ Safe Place’’, The vocal sings ‘’ This is a safe place ,be free to find yourself, there is no judgement, finally, be free’’.
I have dreamed about an imagination place that we could be totally ourselves, free and independent by using the spell of fashion.Since the pandemic has started, people set up safe places and comfort zones with the surrounded community that we feel in secure to live for.This collection is dedicated to the souls who desire to dress up unique, characteristic, and free.
The beauty of the collection starts with the materials.Cashmere coats, hand made pleated blazers, virgin wools, and nickel free brushed, sustainable accessories gathered around with the purpose of creating an unparalleled atmosphere for the collection.
The pattern cutting, looks really simple, yet really complicated at the inside construction. The key elements of the collection; The bigger shoulders, pleated blazers, strong collars, bold silhouettes and various colors and tailored suiting will be exactly on the pulse of menswear.
This collection is proceed by the local Turkish tailors, instead of manufacturers.As a designer, working with the local tailors has been always allowed me to create the garments which will be on the closets for decades.
