Ada Language

«Ada Language» was a collaboration project with Italian brand February First. The project was dedicated to Ada Lovelace, first female programmer and mathematician, daughter of the poet Byron. There is an opinion that Ada’s mother was suppressing any signs of her daughter’s fantasy fearing of the girl to follow her father’s path. No practicing of any arts was allowed to Ada but she found her inspiration in mathematics and became exceptionally successful in it. «I wonder what would she draw in her childhood,» Lisa thought… and this crazy collection was born. Well, not right away. It took about two years to create a few pieces. Sketches, patterns, prints, garments finished with hand embroidery — pieces of the future collections were travelling back and forth between Moscow and Florence. Here are just some close-ups of this incredible mixture of printing, embroidery, and beading.
