MAREUNROL’S _UNEXPECTED SOURCES | AW 2016/17
April 23, 2016
March 23, 2016
at Art gallery PUTTI
As part of Riga Fashion Week events
fashion designers MAREUNROL`S
are presenting a little insight into their AW 16/17 collection
UNEXPECTED SOURCES is a series of stories about unexpected coincidences, about information that comes to us through simultaneous fixation of a number of things existing concurrently – sound, space, noise, anything that is around us.
The first story of UNEXPECTED SOURCES is based on a relationship between a poetic illustration of forest landscapes and a wall of the modern urban environment. The wall that divides society, social space, private property, religion, thoughts, beliefs, culture, and countries. The wall as a symbolic stamp of territory in the architectonic urban environment.
The collage for AW 2016/17 collection includes the sound paintings of the American avant-garde composer and minimalist John Adams. The mood of the collection is based on the associations with a hazy winter frost, landscapes of birch trees, the austerity of fishermen villages that can be found close to the Arctic in the North of Norway, the materiality of woollen clothing worn by the people living there. The constructions and patterns of the collection are based on pure three-dimensional shapes and geometric squares. The patchwork in the collection is our interpretation of the birch pattern and texture.The collection includes woolen coats, sweaters, jackets, trousers, shorts, winter T-shirts, woollen hats, and accessories.
