‘A priority on creativity, freedom of individuality and a strict study of discipline.’ This quote from Walter Gropius in 1919 as he laid out his manifesto and his vision for the spirit of The Bauhaus is echoed nearly eighty years later when Vidal said ‘In hairdressing, creativity is encouraged only through knowledge and skill.’
The 2020.2 collection looks to Gropius and the other masters of The Bauhaus, and the life, spirit, and flair with which these geniuses lived, as well as the environment they created.
Paul Klee’s sense of proportion and fascination that underscored his work, Wassily Kandinsky’s use of bold colours for their visual vibrancy, and their “sound” effects. Joseph and Anni Albers, who made art the focal point of their existence and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, an imperious architect and the last Director of the Bauhaus. The collection draws inspiration from the powerful force of their individual artistic personalities.
