Intimately Social 9.12
Spring / Summer 2013
In this collection, handmade extreme quilts in Swedish reindeer leather are mixed with soft jerseys and heavy wool mixes. This collection is where Minna Palmqvist started her journey towards making her design series Intimately Social more wearable.
With traces from art pieces Intimately Social 5.10 and 4.09 she explores the collapsing and expanding shapes of her previous work, where coats appear to be about to fall off the wearer, and heavy quilts adding volume where people generally want to appear smaller.
This is the first full collection by Minna Palmqvist, presented off schedule at Stockholm Fashion Week August 2012.
The concept Intimately Social (Minna Palmqvist 2007-2015), has its starting point in the clashes between the intimate, physical body and the socially accepted, praised body ideal. Clahes between the reality, what we wish for and expectations from others.
