VICE//VERSA IS ENKAOUA'S FIRST COLLECTION INSPIRED BY ASSUMPTIONS AND FIRST IMPRESSIONS.

 

WHILE LIVING IN LONDON, DEBORAH ENKAOUA WAS SET SIDE BY SIDE TO THE TYPICAL STEREOTYPES MADE AROUND PARISIANS AND FRENCH, WHICH SHE FELT WAS MISTAKEN AND UNTRUE. THIS EXPERIENCE HAD HER WORKING ON THE IDEAS OF ASSUMPTIONS AND PREJUDICE ANYBODY CAN LIVE AND GO THROUGH TODAY. 

SHE PLAYS ON DIFFERENT VISIONS AND PERSPECTIVES WHICH PEOPLE HAVE ON SOMEONE OR SOMETHING. THEREFORE, THE COLLECTION WORKS AROUND THE IDEA OF DIFFERENT OPTICS GIVEN AND MANIPULATED BY THE EYE.

EACH PIECE IS COMPOSED OF TWO PARTS, IN WHICH EACH HAVE THEIR OWN DISTINCT SHAPE, COLOR, SIZE, AND FINISHING TOUCH. FROM THE DIFFERENT EXISTING ANGLES, THE PIECE WILL TAKE ON A NEW AND DIFFERENT PERCEPTION.
