Hypochondria of the heart

Referencing an old-fashioned term for nostalgia, Hypochondria of the heart looked into antiquity, nostalgia and our relationship to material objects.

Through the layering of garments, the collection theoretically explored the history and layers to a person, whilst also encouraging greater longevity in fashion by allowing garments to be added or removed according to the season.
