Hive tunic dress cut from lux bamboo terry jersey. It is very cosy. Honeycomb motifs screen printed along flared asymmetrical hem. Long sleeves and oversized hoodie for extra warmth and comfort. I made one in a taupe-ish colour I call Weimaraner here.
Hive is a series of clothing that explores the internal struggle of the obligated worker as a disenchanted proletariat to transgress beyond socially and self constructed barriers in employment and class. Navigation through unchartered waters in self- determined and self- defined meaning-making in work and service, opens unto a path of self- discovery, healing and emancipation.
Throughout this series, I employ the motif of the honeycomb cell, in a repetitive pattern, to represent creation or labour of the worker “bee”. A honey splattered constellation moves across the honeycomb seams like a milky way of stars navigating a course towards freedom.
