Source of Inspiration Conscious Exclusive Collection 2018
This H & M 2018 collection was inspired by Swedish artists, Karin and Carl Larsson, the creative houses of the 19th and early 20th-century Classical designs for modern women. The artist couple has a house called Pondok Lilla Hyttnas which is famous for their artistry.
Carl is one of the most famous artists in Sweden. He is known for the intimacy and beauty of his family’s portrayal of life in the country, precisely at Sundborn, but others also judge it as saccharine-depending on one’s point of view. Carl and Karin met in the 1880s while learning to paint outside of Paris.
The couple was finally married and Karin decided to submit her canvas and painting tools to raise their family who is now eight years old. While taking care of the family, Karin channeled her creativity into interior design, weaving, embroidery, and the like. Her strength and creativity are the focus of the H & M design team.
Pondok Lilla hyaenas which are the home of the couple is inspired H & M with its beauty filled with various paintings and beautiful rugs. The beautiful paintings and tapestries are then interpreted into a collection of clothing, shoes, and accessories such as earrings that seem elegant and classic.
This collection is dominated by green, dark blue, black and white. In addition, the inspiration of the garden and romantic interest that is a favorite of Karin Larsson is also contained in this year’s Conscious Exclusive collection.
This eco-friendly H & M collection released once a year aims to create a sustainable model, but also to create fashion sustainability. The collection using recycled or organic materials shows how the latest technological innovations can be combined with traditional techniques with spectacular results.
Creating a masterpiece does not mean that you can set aside everything, including the impact it has on the environment. As industry players, they should also pay attention to the impact of their production activities on the surrounding environment. Has nature provided all the necessities we need? Repaying the kindness of nature can be done by preserving the sustainability and not hurt the earth. Producing eco-friendly products such as the Conscious Exclusive Collection is one good example.
