Where else, other than in a market do I find geometrical inspiration for pattern design?
I had some intense days while on a holiday in the Mediterranean island Menorca, thanks to a nice friend. We took the ferry from Alcudia, Mallorca to Ciutadella, which is the second biggest town on the island. It is a nice trip on the boat, much better than taking an airplane.
Walking around the beautiful town Ciutadella we arrived at a nice old building. The fish market “EL MERCAT DES PEIX” was built in the middle of the 17th century and underwent renovation in the late 19th century. It would be nice to know which period the modern looking tiles are from. They look so cool!
This beautiful iron structured building is covered with green-and-white check tiles. On a closer inspection, you can see a part of an optical illusion effect which makes it more curious.
I have always loved optical illusions and op art, so I couldn’t resist creating a collection with this inspiration. It just needed to be on fabric! Geometrical patterns are always trending and with a nice color palette it fits perfectly for the apparel, swimwear and activewear market. So here it is – the new collection! If you would like to see the three patterns, please login to the Member Portfolio!
P.S.: If you go to Menorca visit one of its most beautiful beaches CALA PILAR! Its red sand, the turquoise sea and the green hills offer a fantastic view and a perfect hidden place to discover. Don’t miss it!
