I pleat* guilty

Pleats are back y’all, in all shapes and forms.

I recently stumbled upon these stunning handmade collages made by the Spanish artist Lola Dupr’e. The repetitiveness in the pictures automatically reminded me of pleated fabric. What do you think??

    Love the artwork!!
    Jean Paul Gaultier I think did a new take on the trend. (Wonder if pleats are even a trend cuz do they ever really go out?) 😉
