Spring Summer 2023

Hard Food: a starchy accompaniment to a typical Jamaican meal, comprising boiled yam, plantain and dumplings. Named for its formal integrality and its relatively toughness prior to preparation, when served, the experience of eating hard food is, well, the opposite of what its name implies. For her sophomore Paris presentation, Bianca Saunders riffs on this duality of external appearances and interior reality, all while reinterrogating and reframing the brand’s nuanced technical signatures.
