We love nothing more than messing about with fabric! (You’d never have guessed!) We are in our element when sampling cloth; arranging and re-arranging fabrics to conjure up a mood or a feeling. In our Cloth House Mood Board Series, we are letting you slip behind the scenes of Cloth House and see at what fabrics are inspiring us…
Earlier this year we leapt into the kaleidoscopic world of Sonia Delaunay. Comprehensively exhibited at the Tate, her work is beautiful example of how abstract art can be translated into textile design. A running theme also adopted in the 2015 Autumn / Winter menswear collection of Agi & Sam and continued into Paul Smith’s Spring / Summer 2016 collection. Avant Garde splashes of paint and expressive daubs of colour took residence on trousers and jackets rather than across a stretched canvas.
Inspired by this concept we created the Cloth House “Colour Riot” mood board. Colour blocking geometric shapes and tertiary colours, as though they were brush strokes. Here the focus lies with colour and form. An artistic arrangement of rich pigmentations worthy of any artist’s colour palette.
