Aline CELI SS2016
"Let's colour Kandinski, Klee, Picasso"
"I see it as bringing art into everyday life," is how German-Brazilian designer Aline Celi describes her wonderfully light-looking outfits. The art of the Bauhaus era inspired Celi to create her 2016 summer collection, "Beauty lies in simplicity", she says about her everyday fashion. Her feminine look is based on flowing silhouettes. Celi skilfully combines functional and geometric cuts. Typically Bauhaus.
The subtle colours are also inspired by Bauhaus painting, by Kandinski, Klee and Picasso. "Inspiration through art, but for a business-suitable look," is how Celi formulates the interplay of her inspirations.
The connection between Bauhaus and fashion is rare, says Aline Celi. But especially the reduction to clear design principles leads to a modern, figure-hugging look. Flowing materials such as silk with its light and fine character are combined with the stable structure of cotton or chiffon. This gives the high-quality fabrics an ideal fit.
The collection is sewn by a women's cooperative in Brazil and tailors in Karlsruhe. Here too, German-Brazilian designer Aline Celi combines the best of both worlds. A small special series is produced entirely from airy neoprene: unusual collection items such as a white overall and comfortable trousers. High-tech material for futuristic accents. Here, too, Celi inspired a motif from the Bauhaus era, Futurism.
