-ABOUT THIS COLLECTION-
" For the fall/winter 2017 season, PRIVATE POLICY takes on the ever changing landscape of modern globalization; by realizing that globalization has surpassed the "neighboring" relationship and moved into a 'polycephaly' based relationship; a condition of having multiple heads conjoined to one body. These "heads" are meant to symbolize each nation's unique beliefs, cultural identities and interests. The "one body" is a metaphor for a giant global system that can easily be affected by a single action taken by any other country. The "body" cannot survive without the "heads" collaboration, so the trouble of one area becomes the trouble of all.
This inspiration can mostly be seen through the collection use of collaging and graphic patterns. A biker jacket and cropped trouser combine graphics of other country's flags to create an impactful centralized moment. Straps chains and harness details promote the idea of multiple pieces being interconnected and the need for them to work together to function. The mixing of unconventional fabrics like velvet and denim further support the concept of opposites coming together, and the introduction of heavy canvases, quilting, and nylon hint at militarism which acknowledges the ever growing issue between war and government."
-ABOUT THE BRAND-
"Everyone should make their own rules. "we are not trying to make fancy shit for people, we rather make PRIVATE POLICY, just some cool stuff for our friends."
We hang out a lot with our friends in Downtown New York. We love observing people walking in Lower East Side, SoHo and Chinatown. It just feels great to be surrounded by fascinating people, who are not afraid to express their colorful personality and rebellious heart. Everyone is so unique in Downtown New York, that is what PRIVATE POLICY is about. We see many young people with a rebellious heart, but it is hard to find anything matching their free spirit, so we make what is truly desired for the moment.
In our collections, we want to break the boundaries embedded in fashion and society. Why not menswear for girls? Why not some couture velvet and silk wool for a street bomber? Why not take some risk with mix&matching bright colors? And then, we throw on some beads, show off some fringe and fur. These contrasts naturally built beautiful tensions, which then creates a big-bang of visual and tactile sensations."
POLYCEPHALY is the condition of having multiple heads. The "body" cannot survive without the "heads" collbating, because the trouble of one is trouble of all"
