CONCEPT : SPIRIT
Michail Gkinis is making meaningful clothes always progressing the Raison d’Etre into the wearers mind. The message he portrays is ‘Form Follows Function’ by the Bauhaus art movement. His admiration to implement it not only in clothing but as a purpose of life. Having this in mind he is applying the amalgamations of industrial/ nature/ human values/ the space within as the fundamental inspirational engine in order to express his awareness about the modern social environment and in result is using clothing as a medium to communicate with the rest of the humanity.
