Belgrade-based designer Ana Trosic Trajkovic presented her Fall Winter 2016/17 Collection named Irregular Polygons during the ongoing Belgrade Fashion Week. Inspired by the work of American painter Frank Stella, the collection represents the link between two seemingly incompatible artistic movements – minimalism and abstract expressionism. Silhouettes and structures are the product of geometric approach in defining the shape and all the prints are result of manipulation with forms from Stella’s paintings and sculptures, made by their rotation and repetition in the two-dimensional surface. The color palette includes large range of colors, from pure and primary colors, through to fluorescent and pastels, enriched with dynamic optical illusionistically effects in detail. As for the material Ana uses silk, cotton and viscose, as well as neoprene, vinyl and velvet, with added printing and embroidery.
Stella’s motto “What you see is what you see”, which completes his creative approach, states that art has no deeper message. Ana transferred this motto with this ready-to-wear collection to the garment. Thus, the collection is dedicated to the woman who recognize that aesthetics.
