碧安卡在義大利語裡是白色的意思 The making of Bianca

發想設計 Bianca 的那個午後非常炎熱,腦海不停不停浮現出Uluwatu峭壁上方擱置的度假木屋和一旁滿庭院的緬梔花,或是在Capri拍攝香水廣告、身著潔白泳裝的義大利模特兒 Bianca Balti;本來按著草稿做出八九條珠子流蘇,妹妹說很像總令人覺得是外星奇行種的浮游多觸角深海生物,後來只留下三條小腳編成簡單的三股辮,喜歡垂墜游動但又交織成小柱體這樣有份量的線條,有空時來做一個 Bianca +plus 款好了 :)

The afternoon that I had accomplished “Bianca” design was on a boiling heat, up to the cliff of Uluwatu in Jimbaran, there were abandoned bungalows with sheer white rooftops, and Frangipani blooming all over in the yard, or, the Italian model Bianca Balti, she’d be dressed in ivory bathing suit, you’d see the reflection of shimmering water of Capri Island in her shades - all these were haunting in my mind meanwhile working on the needle work. 

The first prototype was the pearl base attached with nine threads of beads tassels, my sister thought I was making an octo-alien-like, mysterious creature living deeply in the ocean. In the end I kept only three threads and braided them together, I really like how fluid the threads be like but braiding into a columnar shape is making them gently stronger.
