Called Shell, the symmetrical garments formed Krantz's final project while studying at HDK School of Design and Crafts in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Here is some more information from Julia Krantz:

In my final project I have deviated from the physical paper and sketched directly on the body with the material. I have let myself be inspired by anatomical elements, inner organs, and physical symmetry, as well as different body-related objects, such as protective equipment, masks, and different appliances.

I have worked in two layers in which I have built metal constructions together with outer transparent garments.

I have enlarged and deformed but also created new forms where weight, direction, and silhouette have been my starting points.

By adding light, I enhance the three-dimensional experience and the physical body.
