don't think before you leap...

"Like a sword fencing ballerina" - that was my first thought when I looked at Sample CM's F.W.2016 collection  - grand bassin.

Let's be honest, you don't see many of them walking around.

Characterised by refined, intelligent design, the 20 signature pieces condense the essential elements of street and sportswear. The designs are handmade in Berlin and are available in exclusive editions. I will be honest I'm not entirely sure how I feel about these pieces apart from that glorious red skirt. ..

The .grand bassin. project works as a set of equipment that stretches the body to the limits of action spaces. The garments come with velcro straps and instructions, inviting to experience the clothing as a full bodily practice, giving you the opportunity to adjust, loosen, tighten all the straps and transform the piece.

Reinforced, consolidated, fastened or transformed, .grand bassin. opens a field of teamwork and mechanical movement

Sample-cm is an innovative design label based in Berlin. The french designer Margot Charbonnier graduated with degrees in Sociology and degrees in Fashion from prestigious Duperré in Paris and London's world-renowned Central Saint Martins.

 The collection .grand bassin. (don't think before you leap) is "young, empowered and forward fashion"

Is it?
