For the current Spring 2016 season, Shwood debuts a new line of frames dubbed the “Badlands” collection.
Inspired by Ralph Waldo Emerson — who once quoted as saying, “Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not” — Shwood developed a new resin-based design process that encapsulates the feeling an individual experiences when in a truly beautiful location.
The brand uses high-pressure resin casting and its signature hand-made processing technique for the collection, while incorporating whole feathers and flora set in clear resin onto wood and acetate frames. The result creates one-of-a-kind wearable art pieces with striking patterns reminiscent of the badlands distinct colors and eroded landscapes.
The Shwood Badlands Collection drops March 14 at the brand’s online store and specialty retailers.
