The german label Prose Studio is not an unfamiliar name, the Schorndorf-based designers Miriam Lehle and Sabine Egler caused quite the stir at the Festival de Hyères 2008; the collection, titled ‚Golden Decay‘ displayed dresses in dark, muted tones adorned with beautifully melted and draped golden cobwebs, which were actually heated and reformed synthetics. These images sure stuck in my head, but I didn’t come across them again until today. However,  I will follow them way more attentive from now on, as I’ve become completely fascinated by their special edition project ‚Crumpled Paper‚. Just as the title suggests, the leitmotif is very clear: crumpled, torn paper in all its variations. Dresses that look like they’re actually made of paper, silk pants and dresses screen printed with crumpled paper. All in soft hues with a little black thrown in, with simple, flowing cuts make for a perfectly delicate and light contrast to the rough material of paper itself.

Gorgeously put into focus by photographer Rafael Krötz.

      I know! I keep thinking about what it’s made of, but I can’t seem to figure it out.

    […] Katherine Mae stellt euch das deutsche Label Prose vor. Die Fotos der Kollektion wirken wie zerknittertes Papier, Seile oder Gardinen. […]
