Agnès Hardi presents this small bandana scarf, 50 centimeters square, printed on 67g / m² silk twill. The Vitralo motif is inspired by a stained-glass window from the Middle Ages. Its Persan variant is of two indigo and turquoise blues accented with taupe on a white background.
This pattern is part of a collection of scarves with varied patterns and shimmering colors entirely designed by Agnès Hardi. There are geometric patterns, flowers, leaves, old documents, Asian or architectural inspirations. You will find different formats in this collection: the 50 x 50 cm bandana, the 90 x 90 cm square scarf, and the 180 x 90 cm stole.
All the squares, regardless of their size, are printed on 67 grams per square meter silk twill, as well as two stole patterns: Rosko and Vitralo. The stoles of the other patterns are printed on 40/45 grams per square meter cotton voile. The finish of all items printed on silk is a hand-crafted French roll. The finishes of the cotton voile stoles are machine-made flat hems.
Origin of VITRALO by Agnès
It is impossible not to be impressed when standing before the stained-glass windows that play with light to tell us so many stories. They the true ancestors of comics and mix surprising colors linked by the gray of lead or tin.
One of my friends brought me a picture of one of these windows and I was transported by the movement that I could feel. No rigid limit between the colors but curved lines giving almost an impression of drapery to this rigid stained-glass window.
This mixture represents exactly one of my favorite themes: fabric within fabric. In addition, the eglantines in grisaille mixed with lilies of a delicious delicacy could only complete this grouping.
Stained-glass window from the abbey church of Saint Denis from the first quarter of the 14th century, at the Cluny Museum (Paris).
