The Lucy and Bart collective are made up of British Lucy McRae and Dutch Bart Hess who met at Philips Design, working in a far future design research programme. The ad hoc duo worked close to the body, imagining the skin could sprout gills, becoming ecological skins, where textiles grow from skin pores and gender becomes fluid. They describe their work as an instinctual stalking of fashion, architecture, performance and the body. Translated to physical pieces, the duo use unexpected materials like foam, shards of wood and even balloons to create mindblowing ensembles that do much to distort the body.
