KA WA KEY SS19
Updated: Aug 11, 2021
"I cannot make you understand, I cannot make anyone understand what is happening inside me. One morning I woke up from uneasy dreams and found myself transformed."
Here's a sketch I did during the first on-schedule presentation for KA WA KEY, held in the Discovery Lab during London Fashion Week Men's.
The SS19 collection, called "Picture of a Monk", is a fictional and fashionable tale about a monk dreaming of being a model.
The show was really unique and one of the gems of this LFWM. It consisted of a very sensual and moving dance performance that explores the themes of change, transformation and reincarnation. In a moment when designers are looking for effective ways to present their collections, KA WA KEY show was as simple as powerful.
Having been recently shortlisted for the prestigious Woolmark prize, the future looks bright for the dynamic and creative duo behind KA WA KEY: I am already looking forward to seeing what's coming next!
