Ana Locking: Insides

There´s a part of me in all of my collections, each of them reflect my worries and personal fears, parts of my being…

"INSIDES" plays with irony and double entendre. Physical insides versus emotional insides; a dissection of the duality of men; body and soul; flesh and spirit, the marriage between these two opposite concepts.

“INSIDES” is a story about decomposition and regeneration; life in motion. There are existential crises and lively emotions.

The prints in “INSIDES” are photographs of the insides of the human body captured by the lens of a microscope.

Materials and textures decorated with images of red corpuscles, leukocytes, muscle tissue, tendon; the paradox: that it is covering the outside with the inside.

Being able to literally see the insides of the body gives people the chance to see themselves in a whole new light.

Shapes

The clothes are tailored and perfectly structured. Sheer, lace, asymmetries and tailored belted jackets are some of the primary elements.

Colors & Textures

Pale skin, tanned skin, red blood, blue blood, yellow bile, bones and black that comes from the depths of the human being.

Photographic prints of the human body are the main motif of the collection and create a parade of abstract images that resemble natural landscapes.

Accessories

Jewelry is in the spotlight: circular charms hang from tangled chain necklaces and bracelets as a metaphor for red corpuscles intertwining with muscle tissue.

The shoes: sandals for men that allow room for the skin to breathe and python and leather stilettos for women with sky high heels complete the look.
