While working on the fall-winter collection, the designer was absorbed by the novel of Thomas Harris who tells the story of Hannibal Lecter – a talented surgeon, psychiatrist and serial killer practicing cannibalism.
Being impressed by Lecter’s good manners, LARA QUINT created long tailor-made coats and comfortable trouser suits with blooming purple and bright orange tulips. Famous Norwegian artist Ashkan Honarvar followed the designer’s idea.
Exclusively for LARA QUINT he has drawn out 10 prints to decorate strait waistcoats, transparent silk blouses, sweatshirts and anti-fit jeans.
Hannibal Lecter highly estimated beauty and art. By eating flesh he aspired to cognize the depth of a human soul. A modern individual is actually eating himself, trying to cover the inner emptiness with surface gloss. That’s what Honarvar’s pictures on LARA QUINT apparel manifest.
«Now when the world where we live has coarsen our hearts and made them insensitive to the manifestations of depravity and debauchery, sometimes it is useful for us to look at things which are the embodiment of evil and yet able to awaken our obedient conscience from the deep sleep of indifference, conscience which is very similar to the dough».
