The traveller

Do we pack consumerism?

Consumerism is altering our perception between needs and desires to make us feel that we always need more. We can observe this back into our packing behaviour. When going out of our comfort zone, we pack what we need. In reality, most of us believe our desires are needs and therefore pack too much.

The traveller is a collection of garment inspired by our packing habits, from the practical travellers to those who need to pack every last creature comfort. Using the luggage, as an experience of ‘the weight of consumption’, the collection aim at initiating a personal reflexion about what is a need and what is a want.
