"But seeds are invisible. They sleep deep in the heart of the earth's darkness,
until some one among them is seized with the desire to awaken"
- Antoine de Saint-Exupéry | ' Le Petit Prince '
The search of origin, looking for simplicity and authenticity.
Within a society in which we don’t exactly know what we eat, friendships are made and maintained primarily using electronic media, a society of general hardening, globalization and an ever growing dominance of technology, the need for nature, origin, simplicity and authenticity is larger then ever’. The S/S’13, all silk collection by Dorhout Mees is a translation of this search. Beautiful greens symbolize ‘real life’ and prints inspired on moss breaking through the harshness of urbanization, by growing where it ought not to, between concrete walls.
