A minimalist but complex tone embodies the ‘Flawed Beauty’ collection by Ines Vilas Boas, with a brand new approach to fabric manipulation, this collection managed to captivate and express the acceptance of transience and imperfection, the beauty of the imperfect, impermanent and incomplete. Imperfection is a form of beauty demystified in this collection, they became the tool for romance and poetry.
The asymmetric nature of the garments establishes the complex yet quiet tailoring featuring throughout the collection. The designer went above and beyond in order to create something unique that would express this idea of ‘flawed beauty’. Throughout the creative process, she developed a new combination of materials/fabrics that resulted in the creation of a new fabric combination that allowed the possibility to perfectly express the designer’s idea and concept for this collection, resulting in truly distinct masterpieces. Each garment is true to its idea, that being, impermanent, subject to the conditions of the time.
The garment will not be the same in a different person, place or time, it shapes to its user and conditions. Flawed Beauty managed to bring something, fresh, revolutionary and yet beautiful, in a time where the word ‘new’ or ‘fresh’ seems rather difficult to use when describing a creative project.
This collection is also sustainable and ecologically aware, this is achieved through the use of and recycled fabrics and materials.
