Inspired by the visual art, culture and architecture of Vienna, the SS19 collection of Bordelle celebrates 100 years since the incredible achievements of four exceptional artists. Being the most important contributors to the Succession movement, Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Otto Wagner and Koloman Moser were ahead of their time, with work that transcended all imagination. It is not only the collection that embodies the artistry of these incredible creatives, but everything from the set design, styling, lighting and model’s poses are all carefully thought out and curated based on the art of this time.
The inspiration runs fluidly through every aspect of the season, consistently returning to the original theme of these iconic Viennese visionaries.
The Grid Range reflects the geometric shapes and grid patterns featured so heavily within the architecture of Vienna. Exploring the movement of lines and linear shapes with a sports-luxe aesthetic, this collection draws upon the Art Deco bathhouse, Amalienbad. Signature caramel and black elastic is combined and layered with black and navy grid mesh in modern shapes and a complex structure that contours and sculpts the silhouette. Paired with 24K gold plated components, this range is distinctly modern and effortlessly wearable.
The styling and set design for Grid was heavily influenced by artist Egon Schiele, whose work is deeply entwined in the artistic culture of Vienna. The model positioning and stance is a reflection of the raw sexuality, twisted body shapes and expressive lines that often characterise Schiele’s paintings.
