SS22 SHE IS YOUR SECOND SKIN
SHE IS YOUR SECOND SKIN
For SS22, Max Zara Sterck explores a very modern dilemma of how we express human sensuality and ‘touch’ in the digital age. Max Zara Sterck created the poem ’She Is Your Second Skin’ with Olivia Atkins, Max Zara is as always led first by the fabric and how it falls on the body. This is an invitation to explore your body, your emotions, and your energy.
Through her designs she highlights the sense of touch. Garments need to be worn, handled, felt and treated like a second skin. Max Zara sees garments as a natural extension of the body, for movement and expression. Creating clothes to empower the woman within and that follow the lines of the endless diversity of body forms.
Max Zara gives her devoted attention and appreciation to human form as the purest expression of oneself. She uses the body as the leading element of all creation, as the tangible expression of your personal energy. As the connection between your inner world and the outer world.
In her designing process, she observes the body to discover shapes. She intuitively listens to the fabric and its connection to the body. Naturally, lines appear and the unexpected evolves. Body following, body flowing.
