Shell Collection http://www.nathalietrad.com/en/section/collections/fallwinter-2014/shell-collection item-list



How do you see the world? Look around you - do you see a whole? Or do you see a variety of elements and fragments?

Drawing inspiration from cubism and futurism, I took a moment to look at the world from different viewpoints, as a series of fractured perspectives and lines. A universe assembled from smaller shapes, overlapping geometric planes that crystallize into a gestalt, a unified whole. 

The leitmotif of this collection is filtering the world through a prism, deconstructing two dimensional shapes and morphing them into three dimensional bold, exotic sculptures. Marked by elegant decadence, opulent colors and eclectic patterns reminiscent of the free-spirited art-deco era, this collection fuses the two worlds into one.
