Where Does the Inspiration For The Print Come From?
Lan Arte’s thoughts on this crossover collaboration:
When I first discussed this theme with the designer, my mind had already come up with countless fantasy words for winter mornings and evenings: hibernation, silence, slowness, gifts… And so on. Winter is the most mysterious of the four seasons, in my opinion. Winter is soothing, like the graceful curves of ink, growing slowly but flowing, and it also tells the progress and retreat of life, memories, all in it. I have never had such an experience before, the first time I tried to read a painting and a garment together, I felt like I was wearing the life in the painting on my body, this time, I am very happy to be invited by A.T., he read some of the subtleties in my work, which led me to fashion design. The elegance and delicacy of this print, gentle and sensual, is suitable for a date on a cloudy day, or for a solitary time after a winter rain. For those of you who have the chance to visit the physical store, you can wear it and stand in front of the mirror, you will see the elegance of his breath.
