THE BEAUTY OF THE MAJORCAN LANDSCAPE INSPIRES THE PIECES OF THE POSTGRADUATE COURSE IN ACCESSORIES DESIGN
The beautiful landscapes of Majorca are the main inspiration behind the handbag collections that students of the Postgraduade in Accessories Design and Leather Goods have created in response to the brief posed by Lottusse.
The proposal that the famous footwear brand, founded in Inca (Majorca), put before students of the course suggested three key axes: craftsmanship, contemporaneity and a sustainable vision.
The result is a series of beautiful designs that draw on emblematic aspects of the island while integrating a variety of concepts linked to the creative universe of each student.
Llengües, by Mariana del Cura
This collection, consisting of three bag models, is inspired by applied art and new craftsmanship.
Visually, the pieces present the idea of canvases, on which patterns inspired by the typical Majorcan “roba de llengües” or “tongue fabrics” print have been painted by hand. The attention to detail can further be seen in the small hand-embroidered patterns, which enrich the piece through the use of reliefs.
Pi Llobera y Alcover, by Eva Ortín
At the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century, poets Miguel Costa i Llovera and Joan Alcover dedicated beautiful poems to the pine tree; a tree highly characteristic of the Majorcan landscape.
The collection draws on the beauty of these images to propose three designs — a shoulder bag, a handbag and an accessory to carry water — made from sustainable materials.
Reflejos, by María Juliana Henao
The models designed for this collection evoke Majorca’s summer landscape and sea.
By employing techniques such as cuts and braiding, and applying paint to the leather, the student seeks to emulate the visual effect of light and colour penetrating the water.
Liminal, by María Cecilia Guarás
Taking the concept of liminality as a reference — that which is neither in one place nor another, or that which is in a transitional or initial stage of a process — this capsule collection plays with dichotomy and contrasts.
