In these pieces Celis was inspired by spikes and studs used as intimidating hardware on clothing throughout history.

Often a symbol of toughness represented non-conformity and rejecting the trends of the mainstream, these sharp points warn the observer that the wearer does not want anyone to come near.

Spikes are a symbol of protection and of ferocity and act as deterrents against personal harm. The threatening pieces protect the wearer, promise harm to whoever is foolish enough to attack them, securing a bubble of personal safe space.
