Microplissè and Collars. 2011 

>>>> Tutto ciò che è poetico è sacro e tutto ciò che è sacro è poetico. G. Bataille, La littérature et le Mal, 1957 <<<<

Microplissè and Collars explores the evolution between a textile accessory and a jewel, playing around the body and the wearability of textile. The pieces are born from an intersection of materials and processes, both digital and craft. The same mixing takes place between different techniques such as tailoring sartorial techniques, digital prints, industrial chemical cutting, laser cutting, 3D prototyping. Each piece is produced in a numbered and limited serie.

materials | techniques: silver, steel, pure silk, digital print, photo etching, handsewing.
