Sphinxes

This story, within the AW17 collection inspired by Dali’s painting the Three Sphinix’s of Bikini, draws inspiration from the cloud like elements within the work.

As Dali was a surrealist painter his paintings emphasized the expression of the unconscious and inner workings of the mind using symbolic imagery, rather than a solely photographic portrayal of reality. Which is an aspect that Merve Bayindir draws on for this particular story by portraying the cloud throughout her pieces with the delicate placement of fur she is juxtaposing her subject matter with thoughts of the mind, cultivating that feeling of settling and strength after all the changes that she has recently experienced.

The story includes very elegant, sophisticated and unusual pieces that are all statement in their own way. Merve Bayindir has created fashion forward wearable pieces that can be accessorized with everyday life, incorporating contemporary shapes with classic design for that perfect stand out look.
