20-year-old Maiko on the street in Harajuku with pastel hair, an H&M cardigan over a striped top with a bustier, faux leather shorts, white tights, and WEGO platform sandals. Her cute pin is the first we’ve seen of the brand new (debuted on Friday) HEIHEI Dalmatians collection on the street. Full Look
The title of the work is identical to a series of photographs by Huseyin shot in Odessa, showing curtains blowing in the wind. These images inspired an installation of hardened lace curtains, frozen in time and space. The work refers to the gesture of opening the windows to set free the soul of the deceased, as well as the idea of a spirit present in a room, mysteriously lifting the curtains to reveal its presence.
