Between Deconstruction and Construction

The collection is comprised of six sets of clothes made of wool, cotton, woven raffia, and plastic. The collection's point of departure was the concept of biological hybridization, defined as "pairing two species or different strains in the aim of achieving a better strain." As part of the research I visited labs that develop and cultivate new strains of fruits by breeding familiar fruits, with the purpose of creating a better fruit: tastier, larger, and more colorful.

In the second stage of the project, the concept of hybridization was applied to the world of clothes. The work process was based on artificial juxtapositions and cross breeding of familiar patterns that underwent deconstruction and reassembly. The linings of the clothes are made of silk printed with patterns derived from the world of fruits. The shoes are made of leather combined with textiles from the collection.

Materials: wool, cotton, plastic, raffia, goatskin.

Techniques: garments – pattern development, draping, sewing, digital print, hand dyeing; shoes – pulling, gluing.

Measurements: clothes – women 38 man 44; shoes – women 39 man 45.
