HELEN_RODEL

Reaching the essence of the designers work, the collection was born through color. What colors? Them all, none were left out this time. No one and nothing is forsaken from color. In sum, the grounds are to project on the clothes a visible spectrum of light in bases of navy, beige, white and black. Spots of light of various colors give life to clothing that will subsist for being memorable. Geometrical, lyrical and informal are words one can certainly use to describe Helen's work. Two paths unify in the same piece, one abstract and shapeless and the other contained and formal. Her inspirations: Luiz Sacilotto's work 'Vibrações Verticais', faithfully adapted, and Gerhard Richter in their converging yet, distant pieces. The designer had only worked previously with handmade clothing, yet this collection is a gathering of both craft and hand assisted machine knitting. Plain surfaces hide two sides to the same clothing, where you can have completely different styles in one piece. Jacquard, intarsia in fine-knitting enabled transparencies and original patterns with threads of cotton and viscose. The craft side of this collection presents an asymmetrical blend of textured surfaces and colors, on the other hand a strictly symmetrical ordination of colors, such as a rainbow.
