Barbara I Gongini

I'm a little embarrassed to say I only recently discovered Barbara I Gongini but since doing so I've been an avid follower of her work. The Danish designer creates clothes that have a tasty raw and edgy feel and a relatively unisex look. Working with shapes such as circles and squares to create shapes that although unusual feel completely natural.  I love how many feelings you can pick up from just one of her outfits, on one hand her garments have a really grungy feel, at the same time they feel so pure and in my experience ALWAYS eerie.

If I were to sum up her new collection in a few words it would be 'urban cool swamp monster'

Look at those shoes! FAB-U-LOUS!

You really have to watch this video of her spring summer collection too, It just gives off that completely eerie feel I always get from her.
