Atelier by FANG Collection for Aviation
by Fang Yang
The ancient art of origami has long been a signature feature at Shanghai- based design house Atelier by FANG. This is echoed in the folded fabrics, graphic shapes and elegant angles of designer Fang Yang’s exquisite designs. Translating the beauty of her gowns into Tai Ping’s artisanal floor coverings was the challenge from which this beautiful collaboration grew.
As one of Asia’s most interesting fashion talents – known for fresh femininity on elegant silhouettes – Yang is a Chinese champion of timeless, sustainable fashion. Connecting on the origami theme, here Tai Ping’s mastery with architectural effects like sculpting, carving, high and low pile echoes Yang’s multidimensional designs. Careful hand tufting techniques employed in the carpets show off a couture attitude in luxurious wools, silks and lurex. In pushing the creative boundaries and new ideas, Tai Ping and Fang Yang pushed comfort zones.
The collection is sophisticated from first look, with refined material mixes and Tai Ping’s master crafting. Twisting patterns, shades and depth of the Gown rugs makes it the most dynamic of the collections. The Tutu range focused folded fan designs on oval shaped rugs are subtle in colour combinations, whilst mesmerising triangular and graphic square patterns define the Couture Origami styles. The Embroidery design focuses on a linear pattern, and the Appliqué line’s oral hexagonal origami patterned border gives a modern, feminine flavour.
