Silhouettes cut a familiar figure. They can pack a real emotional punch, too – they are the only kind of outlines that can convey the charm of an entire landscape. Artful cut-outs impress, such as when they’re used to put a unique spin on a beautiful skyline. Silhouettes vary in terms of their shape, but they all have one thing in common: These abbreviated forms have a symbolic, storytelling nature, captivating us with their mysterious, shadowy contours. They open the doors of our imagination. Since silhouettes can make such an impact, they serve as an appealing stylistic element, as seen in this year’s new SILHOUETTES collection.
Drawing on a creative interplay of light and shadow, transparency and thickness, these fabrics spin a tale of the transition from summer to autumn. Natural structures, graphic patterns and botanical elements combine with fiery red shades and calming earth tones to evoke this special time of the year. From soft and ethereal shades of aqua to fresh and juicy greens, summer goes out in a blaze of glory: Flowers, leaves and vines are intertwined in lush fields of silhouettes and watercolor.
