“Not in a historical fashion sense but more of an ethos of the collection―a rebelliousness in the face of the status quo. That rebellious spirit reminds me of being an outspoken teenager,” Elliot continued, which in turn also explained his inspiration for his upcoming collection.
Surprisingly, the other inspiration is the Catholic Church and the aristocracy, which balances off Voltaire, the 18th Century writer who focused much of his work on the elite of his day.
Then, Elliott’s childhood crushes, alternative boys who were interested in art, philosophy and politics were also included, thus making the collection also very personal.
