THE STORYTELLER COLLECTION
The Storyteller Collection is about the illustrations of the artist Dem Demetrescu and the story of ALADDIN. I chose this story, after the one of “Prince Charming”in the Golden Hour summer collection, because I wanted to keep the magic and turn it into something with more weight and density. Now the basic material is a golden dupion, 100% silk, which shines under the arabesques of the serpentine and mysterious lines of the ALADDIN story drawings. Silk is heavy, in dark shades of red and green, keeping the memory of the drawings from A thousand and one night book that makes you live the story and wear the art.
The challenge for me is to feel the fairy tale and the drawing, to find the right material, the ideal model and to be for these spectacular artists the Storyteller of their ART.
The campaign was made in the “Ligia and Pompiliu Macovei Art Collection“, which representsan original cultural incursion at different times and places, the collection being made of works of plastic art, represented by works signed by Theodor Pallady, Lucian Grigorescu, Al. Ciucurencu, Dimitrie Ghiaţă, Gheorghe Petraşcu, Ioan Andreescu, J. Al. Steriadi, Iosef Iser, Nicolae Tonitza, Ion Ţuculescu, Marcel Iancu and M.H. Maxy, glass, ceramic, metal, furniture and decorative textiles from various periods and cultural areas. The collection also includes an important collection of the painting works of the Macovei League and an important art library.
