Womenswear collection based around bioluminescence. Influences behind the tubular body-con collection started with an interest about the depths of the ocean. It’s led people to wonder how these amazing discoveries about these pre-historical habitats were made and the creation of brand new ones, miles below the surface. We know about the obvious creatures that surface the sea, but down where there is an eternal darkness, scientists discover extreme forms of these creatures, which make survival their main purpose. These specialist creatures have evolved a chemical reaction, which is made with oxygen and an enzyme, which emits light called bioluminescence.
