Inspiration: In a world where masculinity and femininity converge, the ‘Kendo’ based collection mirrors a genderless uniform which does not make any distinctions and it treats both men and women equally. Michalis found the perfect way to convey this theme by adapting the armor’s inspiring shapes with shield like panels to cut-out shoulder double face jackets.
