Post image for Crystallographica

Many thanks to Irina for providing these images of her awesome collection inspired by geological formation of crystals and mineral. The Crystallographica collection consists of garments with strong geometrical folds and sharp facets which accentuate the anatomy of a female body.  Delicate fabrics of wool, silk organza and cotton are fused with plastic and high-tech fabrics to further create striking, powerful silhouettes.
