Youjia Jin’s menswear Spring-Summer collection  has been presented through an artistic performance by 16 performers and models. The designer has tried to revisit school uniforms by experimenting these feelings of fear and joy that teenagers experience as they find their way in the world. The performative scenography was spread out inside a bipolar atmosphere inpired by Magritte’s paintings.
During several hours the performers were moving on the two floors of Elephant Paname transformed with broken up and suspended sculptures, stairs with grass and disproportionate chairs.

The performance is devided between 2 floors and mixes 3 casting bodies with 16 performers and models
