Fashion designer Elsien Gringhuis’ designs of her latest capsule collection are an abstraction of the landscapes of the Dutch Island Schiermonnikoog. She incorporated photographer Tse Kao’s photographs of the islander landscapes into five different garments as prints.
By photographing the garments in the exact same landscapes, they created ‘BLENDSCAPES’. “Despite the amount of visitors you barely feel that there are other people on the island than you. You can move around without meeting anyone and thus disappear into the landscape. That feeling was the reason for a series of five outfits where you can literally blend into the landscape. ”
‘BLENDSCAPES’ was created as part of Wad & Design Symposium, Schiermonnikoog, The Netherlands. Fashion design and styling: Elsien Gringhuis / Photography: Tse Kao / Model: Kelly Noa Estelle [Official Website]
