In collaboration with three specialists: Francesco Comite, of the Lille University of Science and Technology, Joaquin Baldwin, an animator and expert storyteller in digital creativity, and Adam Mellotte, a 3D printing expert, this series by Gabriela Ligenza is a collection Sculptural hats and surreal motifs inspired by various forms of art.
A strong imagery is created with use of lines and voids with an added drama through shapes and the austerity of the color white.
Commenting on the line, the artist says “the unification of old and new crafts and techniques that can exist in harmony and technology, when applied correctly, need not conflict with the artistic formats of antiquity.”
Th hats are conceived not merely as headgear but as pieces of art to adorn and compliment personalities. From Lady Diana to the Princess of Monaco, with 25 years in the business, Gabriela Ligenza enjoys a influential clientele and his adoption of 3D printing creates a unique space for it in the world of fashion.
