The inspiration for Julianna Bass’s AW18 collection is centered around the positive nature/forces of absurdity. Not simply directly in relation to political climates or battles against inequality, but within ourselves and through our relationships with others. It is about stepping out of bounds and challenging the status quo. Being true to exactly who oneself is, saying it out loud, and without apology… owning the vibrancy that comes with the freedom of being vulnerable… and fighting absurdity with absurdity. The vibrant colour infused throughout this Autumn/Winter collection is a departure from the designer’s usual trajectory. The primary print of the collection is notable for its bold deco geometry that communicates both feminine strength and whimsical delight. Once again, for this collection, Julianna collaborated with Berlin based artist, Peer Kriesel, to develop a custom print. The humanist, illustrative quality of the secondary print in strong juxtaposition to the geometry of the primary comes together to create a subtle statement of joyous absurdity. Where we find absurdity we find humour and where we find humour we find strength…
