Tempus Lapideae / Fashion Collection

Tempus Lapideae
Tempus Lapideae

Since the Stone Age the human body has evolved relatively slowly compared to the brain and the improving living conditions. Spirit and soul are adapted to the 21st century, but the body is still a remnant from primitive times. Of all living beings, the human species is the most advanced one and perfectly able to adapt. So body and mind don’t evolve at in same pace - will the human race eventually reach its limits of adaptability? My collection illustrates this imbalance with outdoor pieces that are adapted to outer conditions such as the Stone Age or the Ice Age.
