complex aesthetics

 This is the cell sweater from complex geometries. 
I can't get over it, or any of their design work.

I walk the sustainability line and I seem to fall on both sides.
I appreciate beauty and artistry in design so much that my principles get stretched.
All I want is for every fiber to be organic, all dyes to be vegetable, 
all labor to be fair, and all chemicals to be eschewed in favor of plant extracts.

But when I see work like this...
...from salvatore ferragamo, I just want to melt with aesthetic ecstasy.
I appreciate so passionately the potential of beauty in the aesthetics that we create and
I abhor so passionately the lack of earth awareness and sacred ritual in luxury fashion and beauty. To be very honest it really feels much better to appreciate than abhor! 

And that's the place I dwell.
