DRAWING INSPIRATION FROM CLICHES AND IRONY, KRISTEL DESCRIBES HER DESIGN AESTHETIC AS LOUD, TRASHY AND QUEER. FLIRTING WITH SCULPTURAL FORMS, BOLD COLOURS AND UNIQUE PATTERNS, SHE IS A SELF-CONFESSED FULL BLOWN MAXIMALIST. UNAFRAID OF PUSHING BOUNDARIES, SHARING PROVOCATIVE MESSAGES AND TRANSCENDING TRADITIONAL GENDER CONFORMITY A THRILL FROM ELICITING A REACTION. ‘IN MY BOOK THERE IS NO NEED TO IDENTIFY WITH ANY GENDER TO FEEL FREE. PUTTING A GENDER TO A GARMENT FEELS LIKE A WASTE OF ENERGY THAT COULD BE PUT TO BETTER USE. SEEING LITTLE GIRLS IN PINK AND BOYS IN BLUE MAKES ME LAUGH AT FIRST AND THEN FEEL KIND OF SAD IN THE END. I BELIEVE YOU’RE ALLOWED TO WEAR ANYTHING YOU LIKE WETHER YOU ARE A CAT OR A DOG PERSON.’ A KINKY KNITWEAR DESIGNER FROM ESTONIA.
