above photography from Vincent van Gurp.
This translation is inspired from animal’s molt. Our skin ages through cycles of molt that we can’t notice. Snake,s and other animals, have to go through exhausting stages in order to escape from their skin that becomes too old and too tigh.
It is an animal behaviour and an experience I translated in a body ornament. The tights are becoming a second skin. Made out of textile laser cut, they become textured with the shape of the body. The ornament evolves with our movements. It ages and breaks as a skin. The wearer can escape from its pants when they become too old.
