Roots & Stones
STRUCTURE, VOLUME, PLASTICITY....
In the Roots & Stones Collection I focused on my Romanian roots and the traditional craft techniques such as cross stitch, smocking techniques and the manufacturing of tassels and ribbons. The traditional techniques are transformed into a contemporary style and applied on elegant materials.
The shape of the dresses is inspired by rock formations, craggy stones and twining roots. Large opulent sleeves accentuate this silhouette. All the looks are wide-cut and allow plenty of freedom to move and unfold. In contrast, the use of fine, high-quality silk, which perfectly clings to the body despite is width, creates an elegant and sublime look.
The traditional Romanian costume colours ruby red, ebony and ivory are used for the collection. These colours are complemented by a silver brown and an aprico powder.
