The collection entitled Protocollar focuses on the irony of consumerism and excess. Nowadays individuals are buying more and more useless things and following trends because someone else said they should. Trying to fill some kind of void through material possessions. This also brings in the anti-conformist movement into focus since people are working 9-5 jobs and spending their days doing things they don't enjoy, to pay for things they don't need. Looking at the upcoming fashion trends, you can see a lot of minimalism and simplified designs. I believe that people are getting tired of the excess and are seeking to return back to basics. Hence, in this collection, there is a combination of both the minimalist ideals and deconstructivism. Deconstructivism permits the representation of excess and nonsense. Nothing makes sense when you loose track of why you needed a certain thing in the first place and you simply start adding and adding frivolous purchases. All in all, this collection urges society to start subtracting when things aren't adding up.
