BRANCUSI • BLUE SKY
• The art of the scarf •
Since the very beginning, our approach has been sculptural and inspired by the world of fine arts. We believe that mastering the simplicity of forms enables us to create timeless and enduring designs.
It is a great pleasure to present our first collection of pure silk twill scarves, handcrafted in Italy.
The custom made prints capture our label’s thoughtful approach to architecture, geometry, painting and sculpture, and evoque some of our major sources of inspiration, such as Constantin Brancusi’s sculptures, the Bauhaus school, Picasso’s one-line drawings and The Golden Ratio.
• The essence of things •
“What is real is not the appearance, but the idea, the essence of things.”
For this series of pure silk twill scarves, we have created a gently abstract language that tries to capture the essence of some of Constantin Brancusi’s iconic sculptures, such us Madamoiselle Pogány, La jeune fille sophistiquée, Bird in space, Le coq, The Kiss, La négresse blonde, Léda, Young bird or The endless column.
This abstract vocabulary is Maestoso’s homage to a true revolutionary and patriarch of modern sculpture.
• The Bauhaus movement •
“Bauhaus school aimed to reunite fine arts and functional design, creating objects with the soul and spirit of artworks.”
There are moments in history when a confluence of ideas, people, broader cultural and technological forces creates a spark. Sometimes the spark amounts to nothing more than a flicker. But if conditions are right, it can erupt into a dazzling, brilliant light that, while burning for only a brief moment, changes the world around it.
The Bauhaus, the most influential art and design school in history, was one of these.
For this series of silk scarves we created a pattern with straightforward geometric simplicity, to bring our homage to this revolutionary movement which fused art, design and architecture.
• The magical proportion •
“The Fibonacci Sequence turns out to be the key to understanding how nature designs. And is… a part of the same ubiquitous music of the spheres that builds harmony into atoms, molecules, crystals, shells, suns and galaxies and makes the Universe sing.”
For this series of silk scarves we have used as a backbone the magical proportion of nature, also knows as The Golden Ratio, the number that embodies the paragon of all virtue.
This mathematical artwork shows the harmony, equilibrium and perfection of this proportion, while understanding, of course, natural human limitations.
• The fearless one line •
“There’s nothing more difficult than a line.”
The energy, sensibility and boundless possibilities of the human form captured in Picasso’s one-line drawings evoque his ability to express beauty with just one powerful fluid pencil line.
For this series of pure silk twill scarves handcrafted in Italy, we have created a minimalist and gently abstract composition of four silhouettes, that wishes to make the contemporary women feel empowered and fearless.
