‘Blessed are the Unidentified’
Lantink: ‘’I think it is good to create a circular collection with high-end overstock because there is a lot. With a rebellious approach to fashion’s overconsumption, I am challenging how we perceive luxury. Once luxury and fast fashion brands were at opposite ends of the spectrum, but a new order has emerged”.

The project originated from Duran Lantink’s rebellious approach to over-consumption. His work is characterized by the reuse of unsold stock from high-end brands and department stores. With this he explores and questions the current fashion industry. With sustainable handwriting as a guideline, Duran Lantink has conducted research for Room on the Roof into various subcultures, stereotypes and dressing behavior. He blew them out, pulled them out of context and turned them into a melting pot. This manifests itself in a celebration of diversity, where all social standards and codes are thrown overboard.
