Laser Lace T-Shirts via BB. From our fave designer, Diana Eng…

The Laser Lace Tees and Tops were developed from months of careful research and development and wear testing. A special treatment was development to stabilize the lace pattern. I worked very hard to make the tees machine washable because I thought it would be ridiculous to dry clean a t-shirt. As with traditional distressed t-shirts the design will gradually distress over time. But through experimentation, I was able to strategically engineer durable and weak parts into the designs so that the pattern will evolve as it distresses.

Even though the laser was a perfect solution to creating precision lace patterns, when the wear test shirts were worn, the patterns were stretched out and sometimes looked completely different from the original laser cuts. So I looked at floral anatomy and botanical cells for design inspiration. The cells create a structure that is similar to the stretching patterns of the shirt. However, since the anatomy elements are from flowers, they still have a femininity to their designs. My inspiration images were gathered from the Harvard glass flower museum, microscope images of root cells, and Art Nouveau prints.
