Now that we have launched Aumorfia in The Shop, we take a look at some of the inspiration behind one of their latest collections, LINEAR_A.
Before we get into the collection, lets talk a little about Aumorfia. The label seeks to enclose the beauty of an object that despite its strict geometrical character, keeps transforming, flows with the body and adopts a series of forms and shapes. Aumorfia’s items attempt to be something more than accessories. To be a part of the body, of human motion, an extension of clothes.
LINEAR_A builds upon Aumorfia’s characteristic geometry, putting emphasis on structure and shape. Designs attempt to symbolise the strength and the dynamics of mythological creatures, men, gods and warriors; To emote the internal fight between light and dark, flight and fall, life and death and the final symbiosis of all in their dramatic characters.
Slim leather stripes work as outlines in this archetypal geometric narration. Figures and frames drawn from art-deco, modern art and astronomy are shuffled and reordered to reflect the style of iconic characters of the Greek mythology. Designs attempt to symbolise the strength and the dynamics of mythological creatures, men, gods and warriors such as Minotaur, Persephone, Achilles, Athena, Hermes, Medea, Icarus.
Therefore, LINEAR_A consists of two parts. The dark & mysterious one, in which the black leather stripes connected through rusty black nickel studs and the light & graceful, in which the nude beige blends with gold brass features.
As its name suggests, LINEAR_A speaks through a primal, original language based on strict lines and familiar geometric shapes without volume as the scratches of the letters on Phaistos disk. Faithful to leather as the fundamental element of the brand, Aumorfia uses it in the most minimal and fine way in an effort to highlight the most elegant and sophisticated side of this timeless and lively material. Feminine or masculine, all pieces of this collection adopt the personality of their owner, manipulate the movement of fabrics, transforming all garments; a pareo, a t-shirt or a dress to a statement outfit offering the freedom to release any aspect of the owner’s hidden god or goddess.
