Conflict of Ego Dropped a Feminist Art Collection

British e-store Conflict of Ego makes a point of advancing self-expression in everything that they do, which is why they have collaborated with artist Alexa Piqué on a capsule collection that celebrates the female body.  The 2-piece range, featuring a slip dress and a button-up, depict artwork inspired by  "The Self-Love series" by Piqué.

"The Self-Love series was created during a time in my life when growth was crucial. I began a journey which was focused on myself, on my power, my intuition, my dreams, my reality. I realised that nothing else could exist the way I wanted it to without the ability to love myself. Each illustration was created during a time of realisation, of truth, of a new-found respect for who I was deep inside. They are imperfect “selfies” that depict key moments of growth and confidence in my life," explains the artist.

Alexa Piqué is the first to collaborate with Conflict of Ego since they launched their brand just four months ago.  The fashion outlet is inspired by girls who are "utterly unapolagetic and self-empowered" and hopes to involve a wide network of socially savvy female creators in their projects going forward, fusing fashion with other artistic domains.  For this collaboration, COE describes the clothes as appearing "almost as a diary in the form of art illustrations."  Made entirely from silk, the collection hinges on vulnerability, intimacy, and self-actualization.

Pieces from COE x Alexa Piqué are now available to shop at conflictofego.com.

I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
