DIFFERENT FACES, DIFFERENT EXPRESSIONS
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!

Come and grab some
For this Autumn/Winter 2010-2011, PAINKILLER presents “ Azure” the monotone collection. The palette consists of different shades of Blue such as Bleu de France, Cobalt, Navy, Palatinate and Glaucous, with accent colors: Grey, Black and White.
In noble french, Azure means Blue but this word, in fact, is originated from Persian language Lazhward, which was the name of a place where people mine the deep blue stone called Lapis Lazuli.
Azure is inspired by a story “The Ebony Horse” featured in “One Thousand and One nights”. Just like a classic bedtime story, it’s about one Persian prince on his white horse, fighting the evil sultan to rescue the beautiful princess.
One small trait makes this folklore outstandingly interesting and avantgarde in its time, the white horse is a robot.
Yes, a giant horse carved out of ebony that could fly. The ancient vision of a Harley Davidson+Private Jet! Rose to the sky like a Pegasus without wings!
