Geometric and highly wearable, the 3D Lava dress features a gradient effect from bottom to top and a natural dye treatment. A true batwing knit dress with a faux rib worked using the punch lace technique.
The three-dimensional effect is achieved through the alternating processing of Cashmere and Exté 2.7 SOFT, an elastic yarn: once the tension is released at the end of machine production, the elastic retracts, allowing the stitches to push outward, recreating a relief effect that is soft to the touch. The 3D Lava dress can be considered a prototype for a customizable collection, as the three-dimensional effect can be reproduced in various designs.
The garment is produced in white, dyed using a roller flat method with natural colors derived from plants and fruits.
