The designer writes:

Titled Lepidoptera after the insect species of moths and butterflies, my concept draws on the anatomy of a butterfly’s wing to bring purpose to the formal equation of structure, colour and pattern. Translated from Greek to mean ‘scale’ and ‘wing’, Lepidoptera are powerful signifiers of evolutionary process, providing new perspectives on issues as diverse as climate change, technology, structure and aesthetics.
