Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka is a tale that illustrates the way in which one fundamental entity can transform into another. This can also be traced in the revolution of the classic mens shirt.
Throughout history, old shirts have transfigured into new, giving way for the change to take place. Similarly, the journey of creating this shirt involved the process of deconstructing old shirts to recreate another. Hand-painted elements of the insect wings accentuate the folds of the sheer organza. Fluid drapes juxtapose the contours created with retained shirt details. The use of organza illustrates insect wings, providing powdery translucency.
