Bricolage 2016

by Amy Sala

‘Bricolage’ is a combination of masculinity and femininity: Infusion of the colours and elegancy of the Art Nouveau period juxtaposed with angular lines and shapes created in scientific graphs.

The collection includes angular seaming details, drop shoulder and oversized outerwear silhouettes in bright yet dusty colours. Under pieces are made from delicate lace and silk.

Maroon leather is transformed into a delicate textile through laser cutting. The same laser cut pattern was used as embroidery placements on tulle with disposable backing, making a lace.

The hand drawn floral print was inspired by Alphonse Mucha’s paintings and Victorian wallpaper.
