Because the image in the mirror is not an exact copy of reality (it loses the body's 3D element), that's why the attention falls on the body parts right in front of us.
I tried to create a collection that concentrates all the front details of the coat (shoulders, colors, sleeves), leaving the back-part completely blank [...]
