THE interplay between art and fashion is not always sinuous but is a beautiful relationship. Fashion designers take inspiration from the world of fine art; and, sometimes, even fine artists find the art of design alluring.
Whatever the relation, the keen influence of art on fashion is present is particularly evident in the new Linea Germania Color Dance scarf collection from Mengly Hernandez. The scarves are striking and architectural, with bold colors and clean geometric lines. This collection directly celebrates the craftsmanship of the working artist, created from original hand-colored patterns, digitally printed on silk and hand rolled and hemmed at the edge. The scarves are as versatile as they are pretty, perfect for a work day as they are for a little black dress for a date night.
Designer Mengly Hernandez stated, “These scarves were created from an energetic place, with a calling for freedom, unhinged creativity, and individualism.” Photos from her collection were photographed inside the Cornerstone pottery studio, against a neutral and sparse environment by photographer Anna Lee Campbell.
