AW17 New Deco
The Autumn/winter 2017 collection is inspired by the straight geometric lines and symmetry from the Art Deco period (1920-1939) combined with the natural forms and structures, particularly the curvy lines of plants and ﬂowers from the Art Nouveau period (1890-1910).
” I think these periods contain so many fascinating elements in shapes and patterns. Both the geometrical shapes of Art Deco and the romance and naturalism of Art Nouveau are compelling. I used rough stones such as pyrite, a metallic stone that I love, and also pink opal which has colours that are reﬂected from these periods” says the designer Sophie Gyllenhammar Mattsson.
The collection shows the roughness of gemstones inspired by marble ﬂoors in fascinating patterns and colours. Pyramids, hands and the natural shape of leaves are also essential in the collection. The colour palette consists of metallic colours, pinky grey and black.
