Laced Bikini Top in Lemon Gingham by Georgia Gardner Gray
The 'Lemon Gingham' print is by New York born, Berlin-based, artist Georgia Gardner Gray. Best known for her expressive and colourful style presented in theatrical storytelling, the artist collaborates with Ottolinger for Pre Spring Summer 2022 Collection.
Asymmetric construction. Self-tie straps at shoulders and back. True to size.
OTTOLINGER’s deconstructivism is both sensuous/luscious and pragmatic, invested in sartorial experimentation and ecological enquiry. Identifiable by an unblinking femininity unfastened from rigidities of gender and conventions of tradition, the clothes have the look and feel of the one-of-a-kind, though deeply connected to a vigorous network of shared sensibilities and values about fashion, art, music and social action. Ostensibly organic and gentle garments like wool and lace become unravelled and estranged to the core, only to be spliced together with hard and industrial elements, finished into clothes that reveal and refine their materials’ expressive/emotive/emotional potential.
