Designer Bea Szenfeld is the woman behind these jaw dropping costumes created by layering paillettes and sharply-creased geometric forms out of paper. From Szenfeld’s ‘Sur la Plage’ (‘On the Beach’) collection, the pieces pull from 50s burlesque silhouettes and tribalism. The talented Polish designer says she draws inspiration from oceanic myths also.
Szenfeld’s client list includes Hello Kitty, Swarovski Crystal, Tommy Hilfiger and Stella McCartney. She points out that her material of choice is stiff cardboard because it provides so many options for creating structure. Check out more from Bea Szenfeld’s Sur la Plage collection in the gallery.
