What is it that makes women wear uncomfortable clothes? Laport did some research and discovered the relation between status and physical self-restriction by wearing (extremely) uncomfortable and impractical clothes and accessories. This led to a collection of clothes that are not practical indeed. He created unusual shapes, using fragile materials that seem to billow in the wind. To get the effect he was looking for he combined silk plissé and nylon, and used laser technique on leather to create a beautiful lacy texture.
