For his collection, fashion designer Raphael Abel was inspired by 'Walden’,a book written by H.D.Thoreau. Walden is a story about simplicity, independence, altruism and truth. It is a resistance against mass consumption and propagates the ideal of slow movement. The atmosphere of the story is visualized in a contemporary collection. In cooperation with belgian photographer Klaartje Lambrechts, the vision of Raphael Abel’s work is translated in a poetic and ‘zeitgeist’ picture.
