FUTURISTIKLOVER SPRING-SUMMER 2020:
Tesera; "Hypercube" means 4 in Greek. At the same time, hypercube represents the 4th dimension.
And the 4th dimension is “time”. Human is free among the first 3 dimensions; but is stuck at his body at the 4th dimension. Designer Muhammed İloğlu’s Spring-Summer 2020 collection is the embodiment of freeing the colors and the imprisonement of the forms in human body.

The designer know that it is difficult to be a woman in Turkey. Especially once a woman is prisoned and is freed afterwards. The collection, namely “Mahizer”, is taking the women that are prisoned and freed into account. It is also a collection that is produced by these women. The collection lets them feel the second chance they deserve.
