R4SP (Requiem for Self-Pity)
Designer : Joo Won Yu x Nannerwave
The collaborative collection REQUIEM 4 SELF-PITY started out from a basic idea of self encouragement through reflection upon how much people use words of hate in this society and how this brings a negative impact of self hate on individuals. The two designers believe in the power of words, so they decided to put them out there for a better use. The title represents a funeral for self-pity/self-hate and all the letters on the garments are reflected, so that only the wearer can read it in the correct way when they look at themselves in the mirror.
