Maaike Mekking treated us with an extraordinary presentation of her new collection during London Fashion Week A/W 2010-11. Collaborating with a group of interdisciplinary artists like Tania Leshkina (Film Direction), Joseph Xorto (music) and Anastasia Freaygang (Poem) she presented "a fervent, mythical landscape of separates;referencing time and ritual, evoking he atmosphere of films such as Badlands (1973) and Christiane F (19821)."

All the materials used for the collection evoked a certain  "physical and emotional trek" that enticed us into another world "journeying us through an appropriation of masculine American classics; leather biker jacket, white T-shirt and denim jeans......to the vistas of Middle America with glimpses of black seen through hand-stenciled prints, zip detailing and enlarged metal poppers".Fox&Squirrel feel very happy that found the time to attend the presentation amidst the Fashion Week craziness and would like to share with you some images from this breathtaking performance.
