The fabrics are: jacquard for the top with its gray check patterns and silver, inspired by “male” ties. The skirt is in gray suit wool. The big black knot is in duchess satin. On the neckline in front there is a braided band braid embroidered in red. Add ing some sparkle the Serena dress has silver hand painted and pearls of crystals. It is a dress to rock for an evening during an event inside or outside London rainproof resistant!
This creation belongs to Artikol’s collection “The Rupture”. It was inspired by the artist contemporary Baptiste Debombour, with his broken glass and mirror sculptures for these sides unstructured, voluminous, and shiny which give a reflection to clothes. The designer used genuine crystal beads on her collection, she also considered “Canadian smocks” which is a technique for creating textile patterns. This method gives a braided pattern that fits in the interpretation of “The Rupture” for its tangled and knotted side, as an impression that something is broken in us that cannot be released from it.
