Swedish fashion designer Bea Szenfeld‘s latest collection Sur la Plage consists of a dozen handmade paper costumes inspired by seaside folklore and ambiance — water spirits and sea nymphs, the nets of fishermen, crashing waves, seaweed tangles, glimmering shoals, and shellfish clusters. That’s right. Handmade. From paper.
The compact cardboard is cut and folded into tiny architectural concoctions, which are assembled together by hand into incredible creations that lead your mind to Jules Vernes’ fictitious sea demons.
