"There is nothing permanent except change", said Greek philosopher Heraclitus. And if change is a constant of life, as is the desire for improvement, then the latter can occur through predetermined rules or creative experiments. Label MAX.TAN chooses the second route. And while you admire its Spring/Summer 2016 collection you'll see why.
To escape the captivity of artificial rules and standards, without however eclipsing them from the creative horizon. On the contrary, to observe the latest collection of MAX.TAN up close, and discover how experimentation grows out of basic forms and lines. From simple embryos of fashion design a complex language can develop, made of details that evolve into billowy, disproportionate volumes.
The focus is on tailoring and draping, giving way to unexpected silhouettes and austere moods. The garments play with volumes, with shapes modified by use, a blend of masculine and feminine, a contrast between oversized and undersized. Even deconstruction steers towards reconstruction and reaches its zenith through transformation.
Nothing is what it seems when speaking of true experimentation: the magic of imperfection pretends to become a butterfly.
