Het gevangen zitten in een keurslijf

Met de hoeveelheid keuze aan producten (in deze serie betreft het kleding, kleding is van origine een manier om status uit te drukken) wordt ingespeeld op een persoons onzekerheid over haar plek in de wereld: je wilt iemand zijn!

Deze producten geven jou zogenaamd de kans daartoe, om je te kunnen onderscheiden van de rest. Ze zijn gericht tot het individu, maar ondertussen bedoeld voor de massa.

Kleding wordt zo een façade om je plekje te kunnen bemachtigen in de maatschappij. Je ontwikkelt een tweede persoon die men alleen aan de oppervlakte kan zien, alleen déze persoon is direct zichtbaar voor de buitenwereld. Waardoor je aan de oppervlakte voordoet iedereen te kunnen zijn die je wilt zijn, maar die in strijd gaat met de innerlijke persoon.

Het raakvlak tussen binnen en buiten raakt zoek.
