Duty Calls

Igor Dieryck

Leather brogues with handmade crochet granny square uppers, part of the collection ‘Duty Calls’, 2022.

This collection is about power and more specifically political power. The whole collection is based on an analysis of how power is reflected into a garment.

Dieryck: ‘The question at the origin of my creation was: “Does this garment give me power? And if so, how? ” I am myself passionate about politics and geopolitics. So for me, this theme is a way of linking my interest in the contemporary world with an historical (garment based) research of people in position of power through the 20th century.’
