Friday Find: Crystallographica





No doubt you've noticed a distinct preoccupation in what's catching my eye of late... I am so obsessed with architectural forms at the moment. What can I say? It's a disease. One I'm more than happy to indulge in though! :)
I came across the wonderful site of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp quite by accident and thus discovered the work of Irina Shaposnikova and her pieces for the 4th Year's final graduate show. I want to learn how to do this - I just love the construction of these pieces. They are a bit Martine Sitbon and a bit Balenciaga, don't you think? Hmm.. dreaming of being able to actually sew like this. Hope you enjoy these beautiful daydreams :)

wow... crazy clothes! looks like some of it has the same inspiration source as the Japanese mag 'pattern magic'

Ooo now you've got me, Sherrin. I don't know that mag but I'm going to google it right now - thanks for this! K

I love how trendy bits are realized in these: the pointy shoulders you see in blazers now, the tulip skirt made structural... Brilliant.

I can see how your recent interests relate to these- how fascinating- I still think these might look great to walk in but how do you sit with them on? HMMM-LOL-!I would rather have architectural structures in brooches!
