FROM THE NATURE AND INTO A KNITWEAR

SVARTISANDUR // BLACK BEACH

 

    On the south coast of Iceland near to a village called Vík in Mýrdal, you can find a beautiful beach called “Reynishverfi” by the locals // for other its more recognized by the name Black beach on Vík. When visiting the beach you will come across sculpted stones that rice from the routs of the mountain, these stones are called Reynisdrangar.

 

      That is something so magical about how the nature has sculptured the stones, into these graphic forms that almost look like man made objects. I experimented and manipulated yarn in order to recreate the natural pattern of the stones. Along with creating a new sort of pattern, the styles have a thread to Barbara í Gongínis previous collections. The black beach sweater is my interoperation of how the Reynisdrangar appeared to the viewer. Asymmetrical stones, surrounded by the ocean with a touch from Barbara í Gongini gloamy appearence.
