Art washes off the dust of daily life from our souls, and gives us perspective to look forth to a new day with a slightly more thoughtful and meaningful lens.
Imbued in artistic details, the spring-summer 2019 capsule collection by GRANDI is an exploration of the daily shenanigans of the quirky art mistress. She is sophisticated, bold, creative. She is inquisitive and uses her savoir vivre and style to ask provocative questions.
This demi-couture collection features a pop art interpretation of the chinoiserie art form. The large scale print pattern, designed and produced in house, hosts a variety of surrealist surprises for those with sharp eyes.
The pantone colour palette makes each pieces in this collection compelling to stand alone yet effortless to mix-and-match.
All of the GRANDI demi-couture pieces are handmade, in limited quantities, in our Vancouver atelier - with the trappings of traditional couture craftsmanship, and the accessibility demanded by our modern daily lives.
A mind free to wander yields seamless combination of the unexpected.
One of my favourite decor motifs has always been the chinoiserie. The vast, seamless coverage of walls always presented something like a dreamscape that invited me in to the vibrant, serene setting, to imagine what surprises may lie within.
In this collection, I brought to the surface the delicious surprises I found in these jungles for you to discover, in its full, graphic glory.
Each line began as hand-drawn elements in my sketchbook, painstakingly pieced together to create this print.
