Heritage

DESCRIPTION OF THE WORK

 

Heritage is a collection in which "form" is questioned. This minimalist collection aims to create innovation in the form with round lines and unit repetitions of different sizes. I wanted to create a contrast effect by placing coated metal studs on the natural soft texture of the leather and I wanted emphasize this artificial look by fixing them with stitches. 

INSPIRATION

 

This collection is inspired by contemporary artist Patricia Piccinini, who combines hyperrealist sculptures with contrasts between artificial and natural. Inspired by the artist, as the main material, I preferred to use nude leather to represent the body. In each design, coated metal studs are placed on the leather, creating a contrast effect and adding volume to the texture.
