Palmgrens + Beckmans = 31x27x9

31 Mar, 2011 | Sofia Hulting | 0 Comments

What do two architects, sneakers, a filing-cabinet, a high-lighter, Romanticism, moderation, excentricity, transsexuality, the 1940's, young "bandys", moulded boxes and plastic bags have in common?

They have all worked as inspiration for Beckmans College of Design's fashion students when they have interpreted Palmgrens classic rattan bag. The bag company Palmgrens has a long tradition of well-made leather products from its own studio. Now that they've given students in Fashion and students in Advertising and Graphic Design freedom to explore the design, an old workshop tradition has innovatively been tied together with the designers of tomorrow.

The project began with a visit to Tärnsjö tannery where all leather that Palmgren uses is prepared. The students were shown the entire chain of work, from the animal-skins arriving from the slaughter-house to the drying of them, to the finishing touches of the leather. This was followed by a workshop with fashion designer Jenny Ocholla Ayayo, target-goup analysis and sketches. After two weeks, 12 different bags were presented with only one thing in common - the measurements of Palmgrens rattan bag - 31x27x9.

The second-year students in Advertising and Graphic Design in turn, focused on photography. Togheter with professional fashion photographers they produced one unique image for each individual bag. Toghether the students are now exhibiting a complete accessory concept, sketch books, prototypes and photography in Palmgrens' store.

A winner will also be announced. Fashion journalist Cay Bond, artist/designer Martin Bergström and Palmgrens managing director and designer Catharina Herré will choose three finalist bags. The winner will have his or her version of the rattan bag produced in a limited edition.

The exhibition is open April 1- 14 at Palmgrens' store on Sibyllegatan 7.

Welcome!
