Continuing from the 2021 A/W collection, Folk costumes are our inspiration.
As well as from Folk costumes and old fabrics, our enthusiasm comes from an American textile designer "Anni Albers".
Anni fled to America for Nazi persecution, in the same way as many other European Bauhaus students and teachers.
Then the allied refugees, including Anni, established "Black Mountain College"in the US which later became a legend of art schools. During teaching at BMC, Anni often traveled to South America with her husband Josef. Therefore touching the local cultures which had differ beautyness from Europe, Anni bloomed with new creativity in her. Furthermore what escalated her creativity was that Black Mountain College was lenient to accepting various races and genders by the reason of focusing on art, pushing against their strong on-campus mood for discrimination which was endemic to the 40s.
"Beautiful things can connect people freely, eliminating all boundaries at all times."
Taking Anni's mind of how she attuned to her inspirations, we expressed what we felt were beautiful into textiles freeky in our own way with a touch of craftsmanshipthen created the newest Currantage collection full of modernity and elegance.
