"Sur la Page" by Bea Szenfeld

"Eschewing traditional tailoring techniques and materials, Bea Szenfeld's creates the layered paillettes and sharply-creased geometric forms of her remarkable garments out of paper. In the Poland-born artist's latest collection, "Sur la Plage," currently on view at Stockholm's Design Galleriet, Szenfeld mixes a range of inspirations. Fusing silhouettes from '50s burlesque, her high-waisted, structured shapes enhance the feminine form with a vision of the future referencing tribalism, architecture and religious iconography."
The perfect foil for her fantastical compositions, stiff cardboard provides Szenfeld with incredible options for creating structure. "In the exhibition," the press release reads, "one will see creations that resemble the oceanic demons of Jules Verne and mythical folklore of the sea."
