Nuptus is the new Spring/Summer 2012 collection by Sylvio Giardina. Inspired by the idea of veil and cloud, the sculptural silhouettes feel airy and almost liquid-like. Made from polyethylene foam and jersey that works together to embrace the body, some of the pieces feature Swarovski crystals – added to create drama. The addition of the military-inspired jackets, pants and dresses add a more intense and rigid structure to the whole collection. I love the orange bubbly dress above – it’s like being embraced by a pillow.
