Colección de haute couture "Hybrida" para invierno 12/13

DESCRIPTION OF THE WORK

With “Hybrida” I wanted to create an atificial mystic creature in a modern world, which doesn´t believe much in the supernatural, an interpretation that combines wild and urban, reality and fiction, powerful and fragile.

INSPIRATION

Based on ancient Greek ceramics “Ulysses and the Sirens” (480 BC). The creatures with wings, called Sirens or Harpies, are half women half birds. These “winged devils”, as described by Hesiodo, had the ability to seduce their victims with their voices to drown them afterwards in the depths of the sea.

MATERIALS USED

Metallic material lurex linen (50% linen / 50% Polyester) Synthetic skin Felt (100% wool) Miyuki pearls (accessories).
