TiA CiBANi presents the newest collection, Curves of Color! Inspired by a touching moment between mother and daughter watching the sunrise, Ellsworth Kelly’s bold artwork, and her idyllic country town, Tia has once again reimagined the rainbow for the Fall Winter ‘22 Collection. The dusty hues of the early morning laid the foundation for the color palette in a rainbow of jewel tones that appear to have lost their luster from generations ago. A lone gaucho figure stands at the center of key silhouettes.
American artist, Ellsworth Kelly, had a career spanning six decades. Born in Newburgh, New York, he studied art in Boston and Paris using the G.I. Bill after fighting in World War II. He focused on abstract art using paper, painting, and sculptures. After returning to New York from Paris, he had trouble fitting in with the popular artists of the time. In an interview with Rachel Cooke, he said, “The abstract expressionists didn’t use color so much, and I wanted to bring it back in some sense." Throughout his career, you can see how he truly honed his work, growing bigger and bolder and forming each piece into one form and one color.
Tia worked with artist, Ritsuko, to develop both of the signature prints for the FW22 season. The one above is called Ellsworth Horizon. Tia and Ritsuko perfectly meshed Kelly's influence and early sunrise inspiration for the season into this print. Ellsworth Kelly's use of shape against blank backgrounds in the muted colors of the season creates a beautiful design for the silk wool used in the collection.
The Gaucho Bandana print uses the Western inspiration and Ellsworth Kelly's art to create multiple different bandana designs patchworked together. This large colorful print is perfect for adding color to your winter wardrobe.
