DESIGN + INSPIRATION: Valerj Pobega Corset/Dinka Inspiration
In this posting I am taking the time to write about one piece from Gen Art designer Valerj Pobega's collection. That piece is this corset shown in the Spring 2010 runway show.
It seems to be inspired by this:
These intricately beaded corsets are worn as everyday wear by Dinka men in Sudan. Their exquisite shape and stunning colors have landed them in museums across the world. I hope to one day have one of these rare pieces in my own wardrobe.
In the meantime I think the Valerj Pobega version is a simplified wearable piece that I could really work into my closet.
