The „CUT & PASTE COLLECTION – fall/winter 2011/12“was produced using scarves which had still actually been produced in Hebron, Palestine. Scarves with this pattern were always worn, preferably as headscarves, by Yasser Arafat, the longstanding political leader of the Palestinians. Two kinds of garments were designed for this collection.
One series was made exclusively of the Palestinian scarf material, the other one was cut using materials with classic black-and-white patterns such as stripes or dog-tooth check. Elements from both series were combined to form complete outfits.
