Ich ist ein Anderer - I is an other

Estelle: I feel so queer. Don't you ever get taken that way? When I can't see myself I begin to wonder if I really and truly exist. I pat myself just to make sure, but it doesn't help much.
Quote by Sartres „No exit“
The analysis of the environmental impact and the intrinsic value of a person leads to our identity. Who am I and who would I like to be?
With everything we experience during our lifespan this self-concept completes our personality.
Identity does not exist without a visible surface and its reflections. Mirroring ourselves is imperative to construct our own identity.
“I IS AN OTHER” is inspired by Jacques Lacan's “mirror stage” and the resulting idea that our mirror image completes our identity. The collection follows the principles of symmetry and expresses the complementation of our egos. Clothes develop through the reflection of their own image. Missing parts are added and existing parts are reflected to create completeness.
