Secon volume of Geometric Textures for Fashion Vol.2 is now one of the top most selling books and reference source for new designs. These new prints in the book are supported by DVD.
While in the first volume simple designs had been developed with 2 or at most 3 colours each, in this second volume more complex textures have been developed, sometimes with descriptive symbols and with a greater number of colours to create more sophisticated atmospheres. To do this I have used even more than in the first volume, paintings and drawings from various eras, all redrawn by me and adopted chromatically to the combined textures.I hope that the result of these elaborations gives a higher value to these textures and can help you in your stylistic choices. As in the first volume, I enclose all palettes created for it that can also be used for other projects. Vincenzo Sguera
NOTE: The number of textures and palettes follow those of Geometric Textures Volume 1, so they start from 481, for the textures and from no. 107 for the palettes.
These palettes are born initially drawing from the real harmonies that can be found in beautiful photos of nature.
However, regarding the use, not always the colour that hinges nature is perfect to be worn. The psychological aspect of colour, in this historic moment, is fundamental and colour acts as a protective screen that welcomes us while making us feel beautiful with a single tone which highlights the others.
I decided to test some palettes on famous paintings, interpreted in my own way, in order to sense their aesthetic Potential. The shades of green give a feeling of safety and turquoise-blue gives a sense of spiritual calm while violet releases dream towards the future powered by touches of yellow and orange. All this without shouting, colours that whisper, as if waking from a bad dream.
