BOYS BE BOYS
With her graduation collection ‘BOYS BE BOYS’ Eline Groendijk pays homage to boys. She started her design process teaming up with boys aged 7 to 10, studying the open-minded way they draped sportswear items and classic men’s jackets on themselves, creating oversized volumes and unexpected proportions. Mixing digitalized and manual techniques gives her sporty choice of materials a special touch. The exaggerated boyish qualities of her collection invoke typical boyish behaviour.
