Aspiration of being who you are is an attempt in every person. Culture and society has enabled the way we feel we should act, and that surpasses the feeling that set us free.
Money and surroundings (rich/poor, western/eastern) do not only give us cramped feeling towards ourselves but everything around us. The collection captions those feelings, also the contrary.
Some constructions make you feel claustrophobic and trapped while the drapings and volume gives you air, same for fabrics; some are heavy wool and other gabardine.
