They say that the desert is one of our planet’s harshest environments. Yet living things still manage to function and survive. More than just design with a function, it’s a message. Taking inspiration from Picasso’s rose and blue periods this collection from BOBO1325 depicts a journey of mental health in an aim to banish the stigma. When I think of mental health, whether it be depression, anxiety or crippling insecurities; I imagine a dark powerful magic. It can feel like your mind and body are no longer your own; almost like you are suspended in time withering under the haze of a spell. Isolated. Surviving in the harshest ‘environment’ of your mind. But who wants to just survive, when you can live and you can thrive? Like the blooming desert flowers you can break the spell and live your life once more in a riot of colour.
