Reconstruct preach “positive vibes only”

Let this all-girl design squad spice up your life.

article-title

Based in Rotterdam, this all-girl design collective is aiming for a fashion (meets feminism) revolution. With their brazenly bold aesthetic, they’re dreaming of a new fashion industry that does not capitalize on sex nor communicate fixed gender binaries or body ideals. Adding some spice to your visual palate with reconstructed silhouettes shaping the body in disproportionate ways, what you see here is what you get. Glamcult caught up with Reconstruct for our Body Politics issue.

Would you say your work is related to body politics? 

We try to make people feel comfortable in their own skin; our goal is to unite as humans regardless of race or gender.

Is your work a form of protest?

In a sense yes, we are definitely taking a stand against the current fashion system. But positive vibes only.

Do you believe the human body limits you in any way? If so, (how) do you try to overcome this?

No, we are superhumans and superhumans have no limitations.

Where do you get your body confidence? Do you think it is possible to be 100% confident in your own body?

100% is a percentage that can never be reached and that you shouldn’t live up to. It is all in your mind. Everybody has insecurities about their bodies, but you should never let those insecurities get the best of your beautiful mind.

What advice would you give to your younger self, regarding body positivity? 

Don’t drink Vodka, don’t eat at McDonalds. But live life.

As young artists, what do you daydream about? 

We want to launch an extra-terrestrial line in the near feature. PEACE.
