Michelangelo Winklaar Willemstad, Curacao.
Michelangelo Winklaar focuses on the individual who has a penchant for pure materials, structure, nuances, shape and an eye for detail for their own individuality.
'I am definitely a philosophy designer. I create a design based on colour pallets, history and culture. With a starting point: what if? “What if violet becomes the new black?” this leads to an answer and another question as the creative process goes on.
Next to designing; the process of researching is a lot of fun and also educational. As a human being you can not learn enough that is why I translate my vision to the daily life so my clients can express their state of mind with the environment.'
'The craft of creating, along with refined old-school crafts, inspires me to new forms and designs . Fashion for me is the state of mind in society. As you see fashion today goes fast, and it changes every season. I decided a few years ago that I will not be joining this fast fashion experience. Instead I take the time (as long as it takes) to make valuable collections, because you should buy into a timeless design that will last you, and maybe leave it to the next generation.'
