The fashionable ghosts of seasons past are a valuable source or inspiration and references for modern day designers
and at the same time a challenge regarding the way one chooses to exploit them.
Wether we like it or not, the postmodern world is more than eager to open windows to the past in a quest for a most wanted salvation from our boredom and dulness.
The Iconic Recyclation is a project organized by the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague and deals exactly with this question, the usage and creative reinterpretation of elements from the work of same iconic designers, in the likes of Jean Paul Gaultier, YSL, Prada, Celine etc.
The pieces were a donation by the rich collection of dr. Elisabeth Laengle.
But the translation and recreation of these icons into contemporary figures is in this case a literal process. The young designers were given actual pieces from their icons of choice which they had to reconstruct in order to give birth to a new hybrid, a coexistence of their own and their iconís aesthetic.
An otherwise fine line, or a sort of compromise one could say where we witness the transform of Helmut Langís clean shapes,
Yamamotoís quirky designs and YSLís famous Smokin into the 21st century.
All are reinvented by opening a really intriguing dialogue with the past. Because in the end this endeavor resembles a search for a new artistic
identity that balances the old with the new, our history with our hopes for the future.
