Cateodata, cred sincer ca mintea mea functioneaza pe repeat. Iubesc ordinea si disciplina, repetitiile, si cum orice model din viata reala poate fi repetat la nesfarsit, ca si cum te-ai uita la lume printr-o prisma sau printr-un caleidoscop”, spunea Orla Kiely. Un caleidoscop magic, daca ne uitam cu atentie la patternurile umitoare si la combinatiile interesante de culori, la exuberanta formelor si materialelor puse impreuna. Expozitia “Orla Kiely: A Life in Pattern” este deschisa tuturor iubitorilor de frumos, in Anglia.

Despre expozitie

  • este prima expozitie dedicata designerului Orla Kiely, care va face o trecere in revista a unei arhive cu o munca de peste 20 de ani si va oferi vizitatorilor posibilitatea de a arunca o privire in detaliu asupra metodelor si conceptelor folosite, de a vedea de aproape schitele, moodboardurile, prototipurile folosite de designer.
  • expozitia prezinta, tematic, diverse aspecte din creatia designerului: vom vedea colectiile vestimentare din diverse sezoane, dar si pe cele de decoratiuni interioare sau realizate in colaborare cu alte branduri.
  • expozitia este prezentata intr-o forma usor… distorsionata, iar vizitatorii vor avea impresia ca au nimerit direct intr-o poveste gen Alice in Wonderland. Rochiile sunt enorme, asezate in acelasi setup cu papusi minuscule, imbracate cu rochii identice.
  • peste 30 de outfituri toatele sunt prezentate pe manechine, in timp ce un perete intreg este acoperit de genti semnate Orla Kiely.
  • expozitia exploreaza si partea personala a designerului, cu imagini si amintiri din Irlanda natala.
