“I’m inspired by the weird, the different ones in the crowd, the beautiful strange. The ones that are a bit off, the sophisticated freaks, the ones pushing the boundaries of ‘normal’ and proving the known ideas wrong”. People that still like stories, dreaming of mystery, who aren’t afraid of being openminded to unusual subjects are the future of beauty. These people float elegantly around in their own mindset and authenticity, inspiring others and bringing refreshing ideas to the surface. 

TOS gallery designs are produced per story, not per season which is where the philosophy came to life: “STORIES, NOT SEASONS’. Quality goes over quantity; personal attention for pieces are touched by the hands of the maker is a very important element in the design process of the brand. Beautiful things simply deserve time and attention. The philosophy combines the three main focus points of the brand: craftsmanship, art and imagination.

The beauty in being a little weird, also seen as being authentic, is a big inspiration to the designer. Stories in mythology as well as inspiring personalities are the source for enchanting artworks, hand painted silk scarves and magical materials. “We want to point out our own perspective on ‘beauty’, to not stick to what the established idea of beauty represents. Beauty is found in being your truest self, not in what the world wants to see in you.”
