LIEU LE graduate collection “Mikazuki”, meaning Crescent Moon, express how technology and animistic belief link together. How the fear of some intelligent “other” can be removed through spiritual practices. Conveying the search for the harmony between the animate and inanimate and the transition from human to post-human combined with a spiritual essence.
LIEU LE is architectural in her approach to her graduate collection, using plastic grids and industrial piping as appliqué to compliment the leather and mesh panelled pieces. Strong graphic lines and cutaways form a modern approach to tailoring, mixing clean cuts with voluminous shapes.
