The beauty of Baroque by Konstantin Kofta
Konstantin Kofta strikes again
One of the most interesting designers, Konstantin Kofta from the Ukraine, creates unusual and surreal apparel and accessories under his brand – Kofta. His new collection of handbags inspired by architecture is named Arxi. The collection reflects the designers ongoing contemplation of the structures of nature. His pieces are catalogued like sensual, effortlessly elegant, practical and wearable.
Inspired by all the adjectives that integrate the description of the Baroque art (triumph, power, control and for sure, opulence), Kofta has created a collection of bags and backpacks that mimics the Baroque architecture. The collection, draws lines and sculptural curves, dramatic and natural of the sixteenth century buildings. Decorative elements of a gray stone façade are here applied to fashion. The materials used and portray the illusion of concrete.
Konstantin Kofta believes that the perfect is hidden in the sacramental places away from an ordinary vision littered by common standards. The designer strives to fuse unusual components to achieve distinctions that add to person’s lifestyle rather than just to the wardrobe.
The irregular shapes and unique scents integrated to rural and urban perceptions, and “each collection appears as a form of art installation”. and embraces the unintentional and unexpected are part of the vision of Konstantin Kofta which provide inspiration for current and future collections.
