The Kat-E Specimen Line Uses Animal Parts to Create Fashion

Blurring the lines between nature and fashion, the Kat-E Specimen accessories line utilizes the inherent beauty of natural detritus.

As described on the Kickstarter campaign, Kat-E turns sculptural art pieces into high-fashion pieces that adorn the body with manipulated and preserved organic materials. Such materials include bones, dead fish, shells, feathers, twigs and more which are used to create elaborate head pieces, collars, bracelets and gently dangling necklaces. The result is a bit macabre and yet still very wearable and decorative. By wearing pieces from this collection, you can feel yourself getting connected back to nature and embracing the more subtle beauty of these foraged items.
