This project explores the dynamic of architecture and summer nostalgia which translates through a series of digitally printed textiles. The prints are contextualized within shirt designs and two styles of large silk scarves with versatile wear that underpin the style of summer nostalgia.
This project stems from an interest in both architecture and fashion. Most fashion wearables that convey links to architecture are contemporary pieces with strong use of structure within the garment. Throughout research it was noticeable that there is lack of focus on print design in relation to architecture. I seen this as an opportunity to explore a fresh perspective within the dynamic of hard imagery against a contrasted colour scheme to overlay on a soft canvas.
The abstracted graphical structures extracted from architecture combine in contrast against a mismatch of tones which will produce a contradiction in perspective.
The prints communicate a variation of dissimilar moods of calm and peaceful, conflicted with exciting and energetic to align with the contrast of graphical features of structure and texture interlinked with colour.
