‘I used the elements of these simple forms - square, cube, line and colour - to produce logical systems’ Sol LeWitt
The aesthetic of each Sophie Hulme collection is influenced by the original inspiration. For Resort 17 this came via the optic (and hypnotic) exploration of rainbow colour by artist Sol LeWitt. His mathematical approach to the application of a palette delivers almost-psychedelic expressions – the perfect starting point for a collection of fresh styles to brighten the winter.
A rainbow palette
Contrary to the usual red to violet graduated rainbow, Sophie Hulme’s iteration sees nuanced colour applied in graphic stripes – from neon chartreuse to sophisticated grey. A palette which combines subtle with statement, a fresh take on the Sophie Hulme aesthetic. Signature icons are reimagined in vivid new hues to create bags with impact.
The result is a collection of confident designs, a bold addition to work or weekend looks. Colourways and materials herald a fresh new mood – think glitter and neons - while silhouettes and details remain true to the brand’s functional approach. The Finsbury in rainbow is a sleek example - a head-turning style and a versatile solution to carrying essentials.
The key to the application of vivid colour is timeless design. True to LeWitt’s approach, geometry is central to the Sophie Hulme philosophy – exploring proportion and line to create designs with engineering at their core. Bags which balance striking style with design longevity – playful and enduring additions to your wardrobe; the antidote to fleeting trends.
