Inspired by the Japanese cicada, locally referred to as the Semi, Ivana Pilja has created a line of seductive, sculpturesque outfits reminiscent of an insect from the cosmos. The invisible, yet grotesque and annoying insect has inspired something truly remarkable-erotic yet frightening. From vulvaesque gowns to pant suits ready to sprint, she shows how insects at all stages of life can inspire beauty within us.
