“One is not born, but rather becomes, a woman.”
-Simone de Beauvoir
According to Sjaak our world needs more powerful, yet philosophical, women like Simone de Beauvoir (1908 – 1986). De Beavoir was a philosopher, writer and feminist icon. She was ‘the mother of the second wave of feminism’ through her book Le deuxieme sexe, which appeared in 1949. A book about the unnatural difference between men and women. As Hul le Kes we like to see people instead of genders/sexes and that is one of the reasons to call this item after de Beauvoir.
This dress is made from 100% Virgin Wool / Wool Felt. A deadstock fabric leftover from the fashion industry.
