Spring is the season of new beginnings. And for SS14, WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie is truly in full bloom. We take inspiration from an artist who effortlessly divides his time between a studio loft in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighbourhood and an idyllic retreat perched over the Baltic seaside.
Far from the city, his creative ideas flourish as he escapes into the ease and tranquillity of the natural surroundings.
In a glass house that provides both shelter and stimulation, daylight streams through the windows to reveal a draft- ing table littered with worn sketching pencils, trays of diluted watercolour paints and sculpted clay.
Lively colored flowers, deep blue seas and sunshine clear the cloudy mind as it begins a new journey.
Art slowly begins to imitate life as the artist, accompanied only by the scent of fresh jasmine and damp pinewood, transforms a blank canvas into a new world. Strokes of strong, graphic lines harmonize with soft and fluid curves. The result? An ideal flowering of the imagination and natural inspiration.
