Kostiantyn Rybak, the designer behind the brand Kofta, has said that he likes to create “between art and wearable fashion things.” His “Imago” line takes notes from the natural world, with seemingly organic backpacks that recall the shapes, forms, and living things found in rainforests. The Kiev-based designer has adapted accessories reminiscent of architecture and machines in the past, yet this direction creates something that defies its manmade origins.
“The imago is the last stage an insect attains during its metamorphosis, it is the process of growth and development,” a description for the line says. “Maturity doesn’t mean age. It means level of sensitivity. Nature does not require edging as a point of perfection.”
