Emerging Designer Alexandra Sipa Crafts Lace Gowns Out of Electrical Wire
Take a look at Sipa’s innovative FW21 collection, “Sour Floral.”
London-based designer Alexandra Sipa is one to watch. The creative’s eponymous label, founded with business partner Lucas Baker, has unveiled its Fall/Winter 2021 collection, a range of playful garments produced using sustainable methods.
Sipa continues to explore her signature lace wire technique, an innovative lace-making method that uses discarded electrical wire. Weaving together multi-colored wire, a series of sculptural gowns, delicate tops and structured jackets are avant-garde yet wearable. In addition to repurposing wire, the designer also uses up-cycled denim as the base for high-waisted jeans and slouchy shorts embroidered with lace patches applied in a camouflage-like pattern. Patterned lycra bike shorts, long-sleeve shirts and bodysuits serve as bold, sporty separates.
