Daisy was inspired to create the Diagnosis collection by the idea of being trapped in baggage or in this case a diagnosis.
The idea of paratroopers being bound to their equipment pushed the concept to create a collection of mostly outerwear and accessories allowing a literal interpretation of the phrase 'emotional baggage'.
Diagnosis is a niche menswear collection inspired by the idea of being “trapped in baggage”, this is taken from my experience of being a child with a rare autoimmune disease. With luxury street and sportswear at the forefront of all innovative designs, ‘Diagnosis’ is a collection made up of mostly outerwear and accessories. Military uniform and equipment have informed many design details and silhouette.
Collaboration with a graffiti artist has produced a strong print used throughout the collection and the narrative behind illegal street art and artists influenced the pattern cutting process to give all garments full functionality. Sportwear fabrics such as nylon have been used throughout to keep with the classic luxury sportswear aesthetic of the collection.
Specific fabrics have been chosen to highlight the sportswear element evident amongst the collection. The work created through collaboration with a professional graffiti artist was developed in a uv print that has been used throughout the Diagnosis collection specifically on the leather pieces. All the leather accessories have been hand sewn and all hardware has been selected for specific purposes.
