Bel­gian design­er Sarah Levy mate­ri­al­izes our con­tem­po­rary habits in the form of acces­sories. Exhibit­ing our attache­ment — some­times patho­log­i­cal — to every­day objects, the Bel­gian design­er sub­verts our dai­ly life with humour and poet­ry. She pro­pos­es pieces that are delib­er­ate­ly hybrid « solu­tions » that make the body oscil­late between increased capac­i­ty and inca­pac­i­ty between free­dom and obstruction 

Sarah Levy intro­duces the sec­ond chap­ter of her acces­so­ry line Habit inspired from our con­tem­po­rary behav­iors. Fol­low­ing her exper­i­men­tal approach to acces­sories she unveils six new «habits». Each piece, linked to an every­day object that has become a fetish or to the ges­tures that accom­pa­ny it, is designed to offer a mate­r­i­al solu­tion, both prac­ti­cal and off­beat, to our con­tem­po­rary habits. Rec­on­cil­ing strange­ness, humour and com­fort, Tits Bag, Sleeve Bag, Fin­ger Mit­tens, Pock­et Cap, Cur­tain Cap, Cur­tain Hat are meant to be use­ful in their pri­ma­ry approach and to make every­day life fun and functional.
