Inspired by floral anatomy and botanical cells, fashion designer Diana Eng has launched her new mini collection of Laser Lace Tees and Tops. Traditional distressed t-shirts are popular for their tattered and well-worn style. Diana uses the accurate targeting of a laser cutter to precision distress floral cell-inspired lace patterns into a lightweight 100% cotton tee. Pictured above is the Laser Lace Basic Tee ($68) that comes in multitude of colors.
I love this Laser Lace Super Distressed Tee ($68) in silver pictured above. It is so stylish and the pattern will continue to distress and evolve along the neckline of the shirt.
I love wearing t-shirts and jeans and don’t usually wear light up clothes with 140 volt circuits. But t-shirts and jeans aren’t really design studio appropriate. So I decided to distress a bunch of T-shirts in lace patterns. The laser was a perfect solution to creating precision lace patterns coupled with techniques found through A LOT of experimentation to properly distress and stabilize the lace.
