“Pearlescence” is a one-‐piece women’s swimsuit inspired by the texture and dynamic form of the sea’s skilled swimmers. The piece was created as a complex, asymmetric design to offer a unique aesthetic value. In the same way a compression garment shows off the true contours of the body it is covering, the scales made of blue Lycra fabric showcase the silver layer underneath when the body is in motion and the swimsuit is tight.
