The Spring 2021 collection explores the symbolism of the topsy-turvy doll — a toy popularized in the American South in the early 19th century. When flipped to one end, a Black doll dressed in fabrics symbolic of slavery and servitude appears while on the other end is a white doll, dressed finely. The doll, rather two dolls, represents a clear, but nuanced interpretation of racial dynamics disguised innocently; one must choose which side they would like to play with.

The collection takes inspiration from this concept by turning the perspective of the clothes upside down and inside out, reimagining the construction and juxtaposition of the two-sided dolls themselves.
