TREND REPORT FOR SPRING/SUMMER 2021
SPRING 2019 / 6 WEEKS
Derived from the anaglyph effect, panaglyph is a reflection on the influence of the spiritualist movement on modernist art. In a time when technology has become commonplace, the artistic effects of the spiritualist movement give an insight into the remnants of the industrial age.
Panaglyph was influenced by underlying trends of their psychedelic iridescence with muted and dark tones as seen in Patricia Urquiola's Shimmer, James Turell's exhibit spaces and many more. These are complemented by glimpses of saturated hues of primary colours.
COLOUR PALETTE & POSSIBLE APPLICATIONS
Rich and earthy greens complement the dark purple hues, with hints of crisp pastel shades. The iridescent blends of blue and pink imitate the dichroic glass and convey an almost imperceptible revival of psychedelia.
A possible application of the palette was visualized onto the Adidas Tubular Nova shoes to understand how the resurging psychedelic colors would be brought to life.
I went a step further and created a slip-on shoe as an extension of my Introduction to Shoemaking class.
CEMENTED SHOE CONSTRUCTION
The colours and patterns chosen for the shoe were meant to emphasize the dichroic elements while representing a hidden presence of the resurging Maximalism taking place in the current trends with the insole.
