A new fashion collection, blending earthly and cosmic elements, has been launched
inspired combination of models, imagination and exploration, the creation of a brand
new fashion collection is to a certain extent tantamount to a credo; the belief
that by putting on certain clothes one can connect to values that are very dear
to their souls. So, a fashion designer can thus turn into a magus, whose
intention is that all those choosing to wear certain clothes can regain
themselves in their most beautiful and purest forms.
And that's how the latest creation of artist Sophia InLak'ech
appears to us, a mélange of exquisite new and old, earthly and celestial elements.
Here is the artist herself at the microphone with details on the project she
has been working on recently:
Sophia InLak'ech: "This is a
new fashion project called Zamolxa, under which I have launched a first
collection entitled "Sexy Allien Ţărăncuţă" and which very much relies on blessed
clothes, as I like to call them since they are mainly made out of organic
materials and fabrics. 80-90 % of them consist of linen adorned with elements
of sacred geometry as well as digital prints also from this area of sacred
symbols and geometry."
which seems to have blended contradictory ideas such as sensuality, outer space
and an all-out rustic spirit. But where did the artist get this idea from?
Sophia InLak'ech: "The story somehow started a couple of years ago, at my first encounter
with linen when I felt a very strong spiritual connection with that material. I
would say it has a special sacredness, which I found running deep into my soul,
being somehow linked to the very beautiful experiences I used to have while
hiking in the mountains; a strong connection with an ancestral knowing of the
Romanian land. That inspired me to name the collection Zamolxa, which comes
from the god of the ancient Dacians, Zamolxe. All this sacred geometry is present
everywhere in the territories inhabited by Romanians, which I personally associate
with old time knowledge running deep in our own blood. Now let's talk a bit
more about the name of this collection: 'Ţărăncuţă (which means in
Romanian young peasant woman), was inspired by the fact that all these
geometrical figures can be found on folk costumes all over Romania. The other
part of the name, Allien, refers to the cosmological knowledge of these
symbols. And I thought that blending the two elements into a story would be
something very beautiful, something that links the Earth and the sky, the belief,
all the values and virtues, we as people, have inherited."
All the traditional
elements in the new collection have been mirrored by the embroideries and colours
the artist has chosen. Here is again at the microphone Sophia InLak'ech, which
has also referred to the ludic aspect of the challenge she faced in her attempt
to come up with a fresh fashion collection.
Sophia InLak'ech: "Of course there is a major need that I felt to play with things and
bring new colorful aspects right into our life. That's why I introduced the 'sexy'
element, since, of course, a young peasant woman can also be sexy. She might
also want to put on more stylish clothes, in accordance with our contemporary
time. The collection I am referring to includes nine garment pieces. This is a
first project of mine but have already kicked off another one, you know. And this
second one seems to me much more spectacular. However, this collection is the first
project of this kind that I started, a project I really got initiated through
and which got me a very beautiful feedback."
The aforementioned collection could be admired on Facebook and
Instagram and as artist Sophia InLak'ech
has admitted, it is growing:
Sophia InLak'ech: "I have to
admit, I am very enthusiastic about the next project, which I believe am going
to launch within a month or so. The new collection is to include clothes for
both men and women, a new story about the young peasant woman who meets a young
peasant man and the two are going to have their extraterrestrial, their alien story.
My intention was that all those who come and want to wear these clothes, may regain
their most beautiful and purest forms."
collection we have presented to you today is undoubtedly an invitation to joy,
a joy stemming out of forms and colours, an invitation to a more profound
connection with the history of these places, to personal history, to somewhere we
imagine as a better place, something that is warming heart and soul.
