Ink Blot Collection by Sandra Backlund

Swedish fashion designer Sandra Backlund has sent us photos of her Ink Blot Collection, which won the top prize at the international fashion festival at Hyères, France, in May.

The collection is based on the patterns used in the Rorschach inkblot test - a psychological evaluation that uses symmetrical "inkblot" patterns printed on white cards.

The cards are shown to patients and their verbal responses recorded to build up a picture of their personality.

The jury at the Festival International de Mode et de Photographie à Hyères, chaired by Christian Lacroix, gave Backlund's collection the Grand Prix du Jury.

    Because of the complicated patterns of the clothing, the pictures are simple and perfect. I love everything, the architectural knits and the fresh style, also the white and black format.
