#COLORLIFE A/W 17 PRESENTATION
#COLORLIFE A/W 17 LOOKBOOK
The world loses its color, as peace, love and tolerance are falling.
L’ORIGINE #Colorlife aims to resemble our world as we love to see it: lively and full of color!
The media in 2017 is full of news about people hurting others and bringing them fear and sadness. Acts of terror, world leaders speaking about war and millions of refugees left homeless dominate the headlines daily.
To escape this sad reality L’ORIGINE holds on to the spirit of the Romantic era: dreaming away from the daily struggle!
The world loses its color, as peace, love and tolerance are falling. L’ORIGINE #Colorlife aims to resemble our world as we love to see it: lively and full of color! With L’ORIGINE #Colorlife L’ORIGINE aims to give the world more color in the way we know best: by fashion.
The collection consists of different types of cotton used like: fleece and french terry. The remaining fabrics that are used are: nylon and polyester. This collection contains bright garments with a high quality look through the fabrics that are used and the fine detailing. The primary used colors are: red, yellow, blue and green. The Green Puffer Vest with the cropped jeans, green sweater and red scarf, gives the most characteristic look of the collection.
Next to our trademark Royal Blue we used the colors of the Ghanaian flag as inspiration: red, yellow and green. These colors represent a symbolic value.
The Ghanaian flag was designed to replace the flag of the United Kingdom upon attainment of independence in 1957. It was flown until 1959, and then reinstated in 1966. It consists of the Pan-African colors of red, yellow, and green, in horizontal stripes, with a black five-pointed star in the centre of the gold stripe. The Ghanaian flag was the first African flag after the flag of Ethiopia to feature these colors.
Red represents the blood of those who died in the country’s struggle for independence.
Gold represents the mineral wealth of the country.
Green symbolizes the country’s rich forests and natural wealth.
But to make the world a more colorful place we need more than just clothes. That is why we will use a part of the revenue of L’ORIGINE #Colorlife to make a coloring/sketch book for children. Adding color pencils we will donate it to children/schools that could use them.
The goal is when children color, they dream away in their fantasies and help to make this world a colorful place again.
