tina kalivas: ethnic constructions



(images via tina kalivas)

i am so achingly enamored with these embroidered, printed, and sharply draped clothing constructions from australian designer tina kalivas, i almost feel as if i am might hyperventilate. the bold lines and innovative cuts are brilliantly paired with the colorful lines and shapes of the textured, colorful textiles. this collection is "ethnic", yes (whatever that means!) but it's incredibly of the now (and likely, the later, and forever more). good is good always, no?
