Beckmans + SOPHIE by SOPHIE at Fashion Week
Aug. 31, 2017
Hand-drawn patterns have become unique bracelets and scarves at SOPHIE by SOPHIE when Beckmans' fashion students collaborated with the jewelry company.
See them at Fashion Week Stockholm August 31 – September 1.
Fourteen unique patterns
Fourteen fashion students were commissioned to SOPHIE by SOPHIE’s AW17-collektion in which Art Deco meets Art Nouveau. The result is dourteen unique patterns which have all become bracelets and scarves.
"This was one of the first courses that the new students at the Fashion Programme had last autumn. It's both exciting and challenging to begin your studies with a project that ends with the patterns coming to life on manufactured products. The students have done research based on Sophie Gyllenhammar's brief for AW17 New Deco, worked with different sketch techniques for drawing and pattern design as well as experimented with composition and colour. Their patterns have subsequently been applied to enamel bracelets and silk scarves," says Martin Bergström, Senior Lecturer at the Fashion Programme and responsible for the course.
Three favourites selected by jury
A jury has selected three favourites based on the four criteria originality, personality, artistry, and commercial potential. The winners' bracelets and scarves have been produced in a limited edition and will be available for sale during the autumn.
Jury: Daniel Björk, Editor in Chief at Bon Magazine, Bea Åkerlund, stylist, Cia Jansson, Editor in Chief at Elle, Cay Bond, trend analyst and journalist, and Sophie Gyllenhammar Mattson, designer for SOPHIE by SOPHIE.
