These crocheted designs from Stephane Martello are nothing short of mind-blowing.

Martello is inspired by nature and the gallery clearly shows how he has been influenced by seashells and barnacles in these astonishing architectural cardigans.

All of the pieces are unisex and Stephane Martello aims to combine architecture and knitwear in order to create wearable works of art.

Implications - The ocean is a perennial source of fashion inspiration, but the recession has caused designers to look for more unconventional sea creatures to emulate. Barnacles, crustaceans known for their tenacious, filter-feeding nature, are ideal muses to inspire fashion designers to persevere and make the best of any opportunity to stand out against the crowd.
