For this winter, PAINKILLER retell the story of harlequin and his dark side.
Harlequin is a comic servant character in a checkered diamond costume, from the Italian Commedia dell’Arte.
His everlasting high-spirits and cleverness work to save him from several difficult situations.
Despite his humorous character, his name is originated from the word “Hellequin”,
a black-faced emissary of the devil, who made a mad pursuit across the skies or along the ground,chasing the damned souls of evil people to hell.
Harlequin and Hellequin, which one would you choose to be?
PAINKILLER would be both:
Wise man advantage his brave heart, also recognize his darkness.
The collection is based on Arlequin’s costume. PAINKILLER creates color/material blocking in diamond shapes decorating the clothes. Sheer and rough-texture fabrics create intricate touch. Tenebrous color palette such as Black, Grey, Dark brown and Navy, enhance the devilish inspiration. This winter 11-12, Sharp graphical cut would be the new key-look! Wear super slim blazer over geometric jersey top, put yourself in pleated trousers, wrap your neck with printed Pashmina and you are ready to spread your charm!
