Daisy May Collingridge's "squishy" flesh suits quash the idea of an ideal body type - architecture and design

Daisy May Collingridge's "squishy" flesh suits quash the idea of an ideal body type



Textile artist Daisy May Collingridge has designed a family of fleshy, fabric bodysuits as "a joyful representation of the human form".
Dubbed The Squishies, the bodysuits feature overlapping layers of skin-like rolls that have been hand-stitched from jersey and cotton.
Fillings made of wadding, beanbag beans and sand are used to provide different weights and textures.

The Central Saint Martins graduate designed the suits as a celebration of the human body, in all its forms.
"They neither promote or demote one body type," she said. "The idea that there even is an 'ideal body' is ridiculous."
"They, just like people, have their own individual characters and, just like people, some people will be repelled by them whilst others will adore them."
Each bespoke piece took around three months to create, and is the result of combining free machine quilting with the trapunto technique, mixed with some "crazy patchwork".
Free machine quilting sees two or more layers of fabric sandwiched together with stitching, while trapunto requires adding additional batting or stuffing from the underside to create a rounder effect.

While Collingridge "subconsciously" takes design cues from high school education, where she studied artists such as Jenny Saville and Louise Bourgeois, she told Dezeen that her work is also a product of her childhood, having grown up in a family of doctors, nurses and scientists.
