Rozalb de Mura
Rozalb de Mura is a Romanian design label who's collections caught my eye this morning for its unusual quilting , draping and folding. These pieces are all from 'the Thing' collection of AW 2008 based on lava flow.
" What I had in mind was the feel and look of an ancient lava specimen. It's as if all pieces have been immersed in a black viscous liquid, and then brought to surface bearing the lobe-like traces due to the solidification process. I wanted a combination of organic excess and black camouflage, with many hidden details: curved cuts, hidden pockets, two-in-ones, false folds and other secret traits that sometimes only the wearer can really appreciate." Olah Gyarfas
This is just one collection and project from a wildly creative force in fashion, music and contemporary art.
