SS09 A Skin Less Ordinary
Inspired by Tribal jewellery and the African Masai, this debut collection intricately explores beading, braiding and the manipulation of ordinary hosiery. The display of jewellery and the freedom of movement and dance expressed by tribes people is carried through into pieces that can layer up or magnetise and stack, whilst some are strung with rattling beads. The result is a collection with a na´ve simplicity that blends together an organic and futuristic style, as high-octane minerals juxtapose against nude coloured sculptural twists and braids.
