Fashion collection “Red | Green”

Designer: Indrė Barkauskaitė

Client: Vilnius College of Design

"Red | Green" is an experimental fashion collection for women, merging utilitarian safari style with illustration in clothing. Inspired by the protected Lithuanian animals listed in the Lithuanian Red Data Book, it represents the alarming rates of biodiversity loss both in the world and in Lithuania. One animal is dedicated for or each model: Eurasian lynx, bryodemella tuberculata , avocet, aquatic warbler, and edible dormouse. The association of the term safari and trophy hunting contrasts with the illustrated motifs of protected animals; safari-style uniform elements and classic silhouettes ensure the comfort and functionality of the clothes. The collection uses biodegradable plant fibre materials, most of them undied and unbleached, contributing to the principles of sustainable fashion.
