The collection created by Adriana Sassoon Scarf Handbags was inspired by one of the founders of the Vienna Secession association. Koloman Moser was born in Austria and became a famous architect, designer, and painter. He was a very important figure in the initiation process of the movement after joining Klimt, Schiele, and Kokoschka. The Adriana Sassoon Handbag debut Collection combines predominantly geometric features creating a rhythmical space of cubic forms in which the bags were designed. The strong contrasting colors of the flower and circular scarf patterns compliment the overall design. The ornamentation of the bags is finalized by a Swarovski broach, symbolizing the feminine figure. The Jugendstil style or Young Style (+/- 20 years) so called in Germany or otherwise known as Art nouveau in France, started at the end of the XIX century. I chose this particular style to begin my collection to celebrate the freedom we enjoy now. I am paying homage to the artists that had to fight in order to live their dreams in an age in which the Nazis closed the famous Bauhaus of Dessau. Many atrocities were done to the human race during that period and unfortunately still exist. The collection celebrates the new Parisian trend amongst boutiques, opened by architects and designers, who want more than just being able to create beautiful clothes or buildings. I would like the artistic community to be recognized by ones work and not just as a label or mere product. I think that one must protest against the so-called business individuals who purchase art and/or a craft business, and change the designs to appeal to a commercial mass market. This movement is killing branding images and any form of association with the original concept from the designer. Through my work I would like to utilize an artistic vehicle to reiterate the rejection of the “plastic society”. The phrase “less is more” needs to truly take shape in the 21st century. The business world can work in tandem with the art world by joining forces and understanding each other’s strengths. The final creations will then take form and are better then the work we see today. The human community needs to pray for peace and protest war as the artistic movements have done in the past.
I would like be able to communicate with my buyers and call their attention to what we all know matters in life after all. We are all human beings and must treat each other well. In starting this adventure I will be able to help other people and create a better world to live in. Every one of us has to try to make a difference.
