The Invention of Modern Fashion

Posted: February 7, 2019 in Uncategorized

Geometric precision, monochrome injected with primary colour, and a clear unity between form and function. Much of what establishes the well known aesthetic of Bauhaus design is as relevant and innovative today as it was almost a century ago. We are so used to seeing many of our interiors, wardrobes and everyday items echo the clutter-averse, streamlined and minimalistic style of Bauhaus, with the likes of CB2, Apple, Ikea and Muji quickly becoming established as the next generation of modernist design. In terms of clothing, Jason Wu, Art Director of Hugo Boss Womenswear has incorporated Bauhaus aesthetic in his designs since the Fall/Winter 2014 collection. Wu stated that Bauhaus is inscribed in the very DNA of the brand, and continues to be an ongoing inspiration behind his designs, combining the traditional and the innovative. Even the window displays for Boss’ recent Womenswear collection (Winter/Fall 2015) were inspired by the works of Bauhaus’ well known names – Paul Klee, László Moholy-Nagy and Josef Hartwig.
