minna palmqvist/ boarders & collisions/intimately social

I am newly in love with Finnish designer (based in Stockholm) Minna Palmqvist. I just read about her over at Life in Lomo and now I can't stop looking at this tunic.




According to the press on her site, this look is from the collection "Intimately Social," which is "a practical investigation of the boarders and collisions between the socially accepted body and the intimate, physical body." (Seriously, is that not the best collection description you've ever read?) "It is also concerned with the differences between fashion as a concept and a world of its own, and fashion as an embodied practice in everyday life. It is an attempt to work with instead of against my ambivalent feelings towards the fashion world."
