Bianca Saunders, currently part of the BFC’s NEWGEN programme, presented her 2021 menswear autumn-winter collection titled Superimposed. Saunders experimented and pushed the boundaries of traditional tailoring with this collection. Whilst she worked on her collection, she drew inspiration from the photography of Man Ray, “I felt that his work really linked to what I do, this idea of using bodies as sculptures, and seeing how clothes move within the context of a body’s movement,” she said. Saunders also took inspiration from Erwin Wurn’s photography of stretched fabric. The fashion film itself was inspired by Blood of the poet, an experimental film by Jean Cocteau. This collection is Saunders’ yet most innovative as she explored varying cuts, fabric manipulation, and print.
Talking about the collection Saunders said: “I just wanted to create a collection that will make people feel good about themselves when they wear it.”
