SLUT IS A TRICKY WORD. IT’S LICENTIOUS; IT ROLLS OFF THE TONGUE IN A ASSURED RECLAMATION OF POWER ONE MOMENT AND THEN IS SPIT BACK FULL OF BILE AND IMPOSED DERISION THE NEXT. IT’S A WORD THAT LURCHES VIOLENTLY BETWEEN PATRIARCHAL INSULT AND FEMINIST RETORT. SLUT IS A WORD THAT EXPOSES THE ABSURDITY OF A DOUBLE STANDARD.

KAIMIN’S NEW COLLECTION, “SLUT FROM THE FUTURE,” IS A TONGUE-IN-CHEEK PLAY ON EXACTLY THESE TROPES. THE PIECES, WITH ELEMENTS OF BONDAGE AND “MELTING” LIQUID FABRICS, TURN EXTREME SEXUALITY INTO DISTILLED FEMININITY. THE FIGURES BARE MOST OF THEMSELVES IN AN ELEGANCE THAT EVADES PERVERSION. THE COLLECTION SPEAKS TO A FUTURE WHERE GENDER IS MORE FLUID AND SEXUALITY, AT ITS PUREST, IS UNCAGED.
