guess there's just no way of knowing

In a stark white room, with eleven models standing as stiff as boards, Eleven Objects presented their first full collection. They've progressed past luxury collars into luxury things: accessories, garments, and most importantly an idea, the idea that the smallest accessory can be biggest statement of all.

The collection was inspired by Baroque refinement and New Order, and to me those are rather ambitious points of reference when you consider how New Order had this startlingly genius habit of constructing perfect songs. I mean, Blue Monday? True Faith? Bizarre Love Triangle? PERFECT SONGS. So when Eleven Objects referenced New Order, they took the mood of their music as well as their absolute precision. What struck me immediately was the utter meticulousness of the garments. Sharp collars looked as though they were sliced with x-acto knives, embellished so deliberately with crystals and rosettes, cast in latex and brocade and heavyweight silk. Mathematically harmonious proportions with peplums, cropped jackets, and collar sleeves that hit the arms at just the right place.

Eleven Objects is going places. I DECREE IT.
