This project was carried out with the participation of MILØ, a local brand own by two Uruguayan girls. MILØ makes all kinds of swimwear, taking into account uruguayan designers for their designs.
In this instance, i had to create for the SS 20 collection a series of prints that came from the inspiration of an insect. I started to sketch and draw lines with a visualized idea of mantises that were hiding behind plants. The initial idea was gradually deformed until it became a totally abstract pattern, where the mantises mutated into a series of interlocking shapes, textures and colors that resulted in this final print.
The designs were sublimation printed on different types of cloths as lycra, panama and sateen.
My print was one of the finalists, chosen by the brand, in 2019.
However, as you never know where a print can end, I also made a subtle test of how it looks applied to a footwear that refers to my childhood by excellence: the Adidas Superstar.
