Captivating Cutouts

The Allure of Empty Space

Lace with an edge — the allure of empty or cutout space is a feature often overlooked. But not by savvy artists and designers, whether they work with music, writing or fashion.

Beautiful cutouts

Two examples of cutouts used beautifully are above, in a skirt by Robert Rodriguez and boots by Luichiny. The cutouts have a sort of inside out lace effect. Fill these beautiful empty spaces with your imagination. To me, they conjur romance and possibility. Like a night sky at twilight as street lights start to go on, shadows emerge and a great event awaits.
