MEET ADAM SVÄRD

”My aesthetic has a minimalistic focus where I want sustainability, simplicity, elegance and high quality to be the corner stones in everythingI do. The inspiration for my pattern for Sophie by Sophie is my interpretation of the Art Deco period and how the extravagant aesthetic of that era corresponds with my blue and white lines to give contrast and depth.”

SOPHIE ABOUT THE COLLABORATION

"Finally we have reached the release of our exciting collaboration with Beckmans School of Design that we have planned for so many years. There is nothing more inspiring than working with young creators. To let them create a unique pattern that comes to life and gets printed on our classic Enamel bangle and silk scarfes feels like the perfect synergy", says designer Sophie Gyllenhammar Mattsson.

MEET FELICIA ÅSTRÖM

”In my aesthetic I love to mix colours that are unexpected combinations. I look at flaws and
defects as something beautiful that can add context to my aesthetic. In this project I drew inspiration from Art Deco’s dramatic and dull colour scale with elements of gold. I have studied rocks by the water and drawn them, which I then made in to collages that became my final pattern.”

MARTIN BERGSTRÖM, LECTUROR AT BECKMANS ABOUT THE COLLABORATION

"This was one of the first courses that the new students at the Fashion Programme had last autumn. It's both exciting and challenging to begin your studies with a project that ends with the patterns coming to life on manufactured products. The students have done research based on Sophie Gyllenhammar's brief for AW17 New Deco, worked with different sketch techniques for drawing and pattern design as well as experimented with composition and colour. Their patterns have subsequently been applied to enamel bracelets and silk scarves," says Martin Bergström, Senior Lecturer at the Fashion Programme and responsible for the course.

MEET EMMA WÅHLIN

”I love to explore boundaries and see where fashion is moving and when it approaches something new. When playful materials meet detailed work and high quality. With the art deco and art nouveau-theme I was inspired to work experimentally and examine structures. In my print I combined paint splashes, brush strokes and shaky lines.” Explore Emmas design
