One of knithead-nation's favourite showcases from the Somerset House exhibition this season comes 'Balladyna' by Ioannis Dimitrousis.
In true signature style, Dimitrousis will captivate you with his S/S 11 collection and his hypnotic crocheted creatures. Breathing life into six characters from 1834 Polish poem Balladyna, a tragic story revolving around love and a constant battle for power, he presents five astonishing corset and crochet dresses and one jumpsuit.
Each persona has been reflected in Dimitrousis' looks with remarkable craftsmanship, considering both traditional technique and contemporary fashion. Sculpting and tailoring to the frame, there is excellent embodiment from character to garment, with suggestions of sensuality and hints of hierarchy.
No need to demand attention, each piece will mesmerise you as soon as you enter the room.
