VACANT2017年成立於台灣台北,以反省生命過程中被過度美化的贅飾與空乏,憑藉著痛苦刺激思索從服裝設計展現世界觀洞見。

品牌概念體現出在混沌不明的亂數印象中,以一致沈穩低調的黑暗色系與反抗調性,將些許獨立遺世的服裝設計融合今時的流行元素。

Established in 2017, to reflect on the processes of a life that is excessively embellished by over-ornamentation and its vacuities. 

Seen clearly from the developing world-view of fashion design, by means of deep reflection provoked by suffering.




Indulging in peace and happiness,

I think of those made homeless and destitute,

their homelands smashed and ruined

        devastated by the flames of war,

forfeiting the chance to meet with what is loved.

        Even life itself, so easily stripped away.

               

Accustomed to calm and comfortable circles

I recall how the disorders of society

        have their source in the jostling struggles of financiers,

        in government corruption and incompetence.

The evolution of various kinds of hierarchical prejudice,

        the bullying of superiors

they lead to a chaos of values —

        and human life loses its order,

        we are at a loss what to do.

 

The passage of time — is it fair?

Who?

Whoever forcibly takes hold of the production of discourse.

Who?

Whoever rigidly constrains what is defined as truth.

 

Thinking, analysing — doing all I can

        to pierce the masks of evil falsehoods

is it possible there might only remain

        unsolvable murmurings and twitters, pale and vacuous,

just as one gives up in despair on the damage done

        to springs and the soil, 

so hideously polluted,

        that they are hard to salvage or to save.

               

Bearing up the darkness, weak and passive,

        ash corrupting, ash extinguishing, ash flying,

        ash darkening, ash sinking, ash embittering,

 

enduring the suffering, we set out,

        turn our faces towards a thread,

        a sliver of the possibility of sublimation —

        still there within our nature,

        as subtle as the faintest glimmer.

耽於和平與安樂中,

想起戰火摧殘下的流離失所、家園殘破,

以及失去與所愛相聚的機會,

甚至連生命,都被輕易剝奪;


習慣平穩與舒適圈,

念及社會紛亂源自財團傾軋鬥爭、政府貪腐無能,

演進各種層面的位階歧視與優越霸凌,

導致價值觀混亂、人生失序無所適從。


時間的流逝公平嗎?

誰?是誰強迫占有了話語的發聲?

誰?是誰硬性制約了真相的定義?


思辨所及,

奮力穿透這一切邪惡的虛假的偽裝,

會否只剩下無解囈語呢喃蒼白空泛,

一如被醜惡污染的土壤水源難以被救贖的毀壞絕望?


背負黑暗,軟弱消極,

灰敗灰滅灰飛灰暗灰沉灰澀,


忍受痛苦,我們起身,

面向找尋一絲分毫昇華可能,

那存乎人性幽微,

點點的透亮...
