Architectural Paper Fashion
Based on a past project, “Paper Doll,” Swedish fashion designer Bea Szenfeld has launched a new collection entitled “Sur la Plage.” It contains 12 outfits that were hand-made using paper.
Notes about “Sur la Plage” (from Szenfeld.com):
(…) The compact cardboard is cut and fold into tiny architectural concoctions, which are assemble together by hand into incredible creations that leads your mind to Jules Vernes fictitious sea demons.
Among the rolling waves and inhabited islands appears also the mythological folklore of the seamen. It is a male dominated existence with water sprits and sea nymphs that fascinates and seduces the men and drags them into the deep seas and rivers. With this simple resources as paper Bea has created a beautiful and delicate collection of garments. Dreamlike textures and elaborately layers wisps, precise paper cuts and expressive forms. Everything is pleated, stuck, sewed, and glued by hand.
