Gozde Karasoy’s curricular project, titled GRAPHENE, is a SS16 accessories collection for women developed for Diego Dolcini, Italian footwear brand specializing in luxury items.
GRAPHENE capsule collection is inspired by the extraordinary structural element which is the the thinnest and lightest material known to man, where atoms are arranged in 2D hexagonal shapes. The accessories designed by Gozde Karasoy result from the combination and layering of ever-changing geometric forms. A peculiarity of the collection is the utilization of asymmetric cuts mixed with metallic surfaces, with the aim of creating the balance of opposites. Details and shapes are designed according to the demands of luxury target profiles keeping an eye on SS16 trends. Innovative techniques and forms give artistic and expressive value to the accessories in the GRAPHENE collection, with the goal of unveiling the secrets of aesthetic beauty.
