Ghis­laine Viñas came up with the name for this col­lec­tion after her research in our exten­sive archives. There she found dis­con­tin­ued pat­terns and col­or­ways to make into repeat offend­ers” — a humor­ous spin on their mod­ern­ized reap­pear­ance. An explo­ration of vin­tage fash­ion and beau­ty trends from the 1960’s, 70’s, and 80’s also played a part in the evo­lu­tion of the designs. A com­mon ele­ment that Viñas respond­ed to was the use of cir­cu­lar forms and the sense of com­fort and plea­sure derived from them. How­ev­er, to shake things up a bit,” she intro­duced lin­ear aspects into each design to inter­act with the round­ed forms. What result­ed are three pat­terns that riff on the past, pre­sent­ing a tongue-in-cheek twist on the col­ors, scales, and forms found in the old­er designs.
