For this special collection we collaborated with illustrator Marilyn Sonneveld. Marilyn and Bonne have been friends for a few years and found themselves talking about how fashion and religion are intertwining, as people find meaning and identity through consumption. This was the inspiration for a collaboration.
Marilyn developed prints based on the Indian religion Ayurveda. According to the Ayurveda, three energies are essential for body and soul, the three Doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. These three Doshas define the unique character of every individual. The composition and strenght of the three forces determine everybody’s personality, their preferences and habits, strength and weaknesses. It’s up to you to choose the suit that best fits your character. The three Doshas are:
Vata – Space & Air
Pitta – Fire & Water
Kapha – Water & Earth
These suits were premiered at De Bijenkorf warehouse in Amsterdam.
