Barbara Langendijk and Noon Passama

One is known for her clothes, the other for her jewelry. Both are into experimentation, and with four hands they have created a collection inspired by the traditional long shepherd’s garb. The ample tunics, apron-skirts and dresses are cut from white or black rigid technical netting. In silver or copper, the thin threads give shape, finish a sleeve that seems to fray or mimic cross-stitching that smocks the fabric. In this collection as theatrical as it is poetic, the jewelry and the fabric become one.
