From Serbia With Love
Wow, folks. I have a wicked migraine. However, I refuse to leave you with nothing on this foggy Monday, so we're going to try something new. An experiment of sorts. I'm going to post a veritable cornucopia of pictures from Ivana Pilja's origami-inspired collection and I want YOU to tell ME about it. What you think about the designs, is it appropriation or is it inspiration, anything you can muster in the comment section... these are just light-handed suggestions, not prompts. The more thoughtful and witty your ideas, the better. This is true style Democracy in action! I'm not going to ask you to be respectful. Respect can easily go awry and lead to a dictatorial regime, but I WILL say please, Jesus, don't turn this into one of those terrible internet free-for-alls. How tedious.
What you should know:
1. Ivana Pilja is Serbian.
2. This is a collection she did as her graduate project at the College of Textile, in Belgrade.
3. She is 26 and has bangs that could cut glass.
Here we go. Make it count:
I know you all have opinions. Let loose. I'll check in when I no longer have to close one eye to be able to deal with my laptop.
