Intriguing fashion/art and fiber projects like the label Tata Christiane Couture by Julie Bourgeois and Hanrigabriel (Berlin) caught my attention in a new post at Wearable Art Blog. This blog usally features nice stuff, some of it is organic/sustainably made or re-using materials.
The label often features crochet and patchwork like in this one:
|Tata Christiane Couture: leather patchwork and crochet|
The label says it is "a vision of the street costume, it proposes an absurd and disturbing vision of beauty, with decline, maladjustment, extravagance and immoderation. It plays with the borders of elegance and bad taste, digging up our old memories, recycling the waste of our civilisation, and becoming a monomania, a machination and a monstruous and sublime unique piece." Wow!
Ambiguity is the word.
