Leatherwork and Pleating at Anne Sofie Madsen

Leatherwork and Pleating at Anne Sofie Madsen

Anne Sofie Madsen, SS12, Copenhagen.

A lot of designers find inspiration in a hard vs soft, sheer vs opaque dialogue but often this can create construction problems as the weights of the contrasting materials fight against each other. The images above and below show some interesting experiments with materials such as leather applied to a fine mesh base, from The Spring-Summer 2012 Collection by Anne Sofie Madsen. The play with texture is also used through quilting and through draping fine accordion pleating.
