After enduring a challenging year, the world has taken notice of unsuspecting heroes, those that rose above and beyond the hurdles of 2020. From front line workers to teachers, protestors and activists, parents to children, it is apparent, heroes are right in front of us and more so, within each of us. Edvin Thompson, the designer for Theophilio, used this time quarantined to develop a collection focusing on how heroism looks quite different than what we as a society have used to define it to be for so long.
Inspired by 'The Matrix," it incited an introspective thought of finding the superhero in all of us. The possible thoughts of having choose between the red pill and blue pill was paramount. A choice between revealing an unpleasant or otherwise life-changing truth, represented by the red pill, and remaining in blissful ignorance, represented by the blue pill. In a way society's format just as “The Matrix” presented it to be a ‘simulation’. Understanding that passages in life is a choice has incited intent to hold on to integrity within new spaces. Giving comfort and consolation in a time of distress and sadness with my debut autumn/winter 2020/2021 collection “Solace”. You should look and feel good affirming the person you would like to become.
