Batea

Batea dress was a project made with Anemona one  inspired by water, with its force and abundant life .

Organic and natural forms, movement, sound, and use of foreign materials, were the main requirements. The dress is not created with usual textiles, buy crafted out of mussels and fhising net.

The idea started off Alexander McQueen´s Mussels Bodice (Voss collection) and it was transformed to get a result with movement, hand-stitching shells on the "mussel" skirt with fishing line.

It could be unfinished, it could have kept growing as in nature, as when you left something forgotten under the sea.
