Ever wish you could run off to Paris in the 1920s?
It is not too late.
Your time machine will arrive soon
in the form of my new reproduction collection:
Modernism from Moda.
Each piece recalls the teens and twenties, the time when new ideas in fashion, design and the arts
exploded in the capitals of Europe.
Perse coat, fabric by Dufy, design by Poiret.
Vienna, the largest print, echoes the splashy abstracts from the Viennese Workshop
Postcard by Maria Likarz, 1910
Collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Glasgow was inspired by Charles Rennie Mackintosh
and his rose print, a Mackintosh rose.
Coblenz, looks like a hand-drawn linoleum cut of the kind that Dorothy Barron, Enid Marx and
Vanessa Bell designed.
Stockholm features the minimalist floral made modern by artists
in the Viennese Workshop
Like Josef Hoffman's Riva.
London is another stylized rose with geometrics for
a cubist effect.
Berlin is pure Bauhaus, circles and squares.
It's a smallish line:
30 different bolts.
Sonia Delaunay on the right.
You'll have to wait for the time machine. The prints for Modernism won't be delivered till next December.
But you might want to tell your shop owner that you plan to shop for some time travel. The Moda sales reps will be bringing around the Modernism designs soon to show the shops.
