Fashion is always a statement piece. No one will ever just wear something. Clothes will always express something: a lifestyle, an occupation, a state of mind. When a human chooses to wear clothes that have dormant slime mold on it, when a human has an organism living on its clothes, what does that say about the human? Is it disgusting? Is it to not feel alone? Would a human rather have the slime grow on its skin and the clothes are just the next possible option?
The collection of clothing “Inside and outside we are the same” is not part of the fast fashion world. Neither is it part of the sustainable fashion world, which claims to be connected to nature. It is a different world: Physarum Polycephalum’s world. This world is usually deep in a forest, on rotten wood, slimy and smelling. When wearing Physarum Polycephalum clothes humans might become a part of this world. Humans are sharing their bodies with a living organism. Humans are connected to nature, and disconnected from the fast fashion world, humans are post-sustainable, environmentally conscious, but in a disgusting way.
