Why not dress your crisp white shirt with an ink drop or a lipstick stain?
This is cutting edge design by Yunju Lee, a young graduate from the London school of St. Martin’s. Instead of attempting to create beauty, the designer plays with contradictions and controversy.
Her work is edgy and sticks out in context, but is beautifully crafted using traditional materials such as silver, gold and enamel. It will be interesting to follow this designer’s collections. I wonder what she will bring out next. Nose bleed stains?
