Císter

DESCRIPTION OF THE WORK

Císter is a collection where two artistic styles are combined and encountered. The garments have fluidity, detailed handcrafts and patterns created by the join of both styles. 

INSPIRATION

My inspiration emerges from the confrontation of two different art styles. The gothic art, excessively elaborated, totally expressive and loud in contraposition with the cistercian art, which is sober and without excessive decorations. The differences between them allows me to unite them and create a new look.

MATERIALS USED

Wool as principal material. 100% natural, almost without torsion. Creating a pure material, knitted by hand. Also materials with drop and movement such as crepe and chiffon. Also as clip the garments are finished with little pieces of porcelain handcrafted.
