Collection L’amour, Her Happiness Is Never Her Own, 2014

Her Happiness Is Never Her Own is a story inspired by Hamlet’s young Ophelia reaching madness and her struggle of being truly happy without the influence of others. She is drowning in pain but still stays feminine and strong while being stuck between two different worlds.

Inspired by the reflection of water, its form was translated into the use of mirror-porcelain and Plexiglas to represent the two sides of Ophelia and her search for happiness. Dark romance is suggested through the use of embossed latex and ponytails.
