Cyberfolk is a collection that reunites the old and the new. The qualities that inspire us from history and tradition are merged with the qualities that we are amazed at when we look to the sphere of technological innovations and the overall modernization of our lifestyles. The collection itself was largely influenced by digital art depicting futuristic societies having recognizable historical elements. The concept designs by the artist Yap Wee Lim are the most accurate representations of the atmosphere of the collection. The surroundings seem nostalgic but are also nothing we have ever seen before. This is exactly what the garments should evoke. A faint nostalgia for the past expressed not by the accuracy and replication of the authentic costume, but by the modern interpretation of the lifestyle it was made for.
