maxjenny! SS19 Collection Evokes Flower With Power
Maxjenny’s Spring/Summer 2019 collection is dominated by flowers, however, with a contemporary edge.
In previous seasons, maxjenny! collections have been heavily influenced by urban architecture, street culture, life, and art. For Spring / Summer 2019, step inside designer’s Maxyenny Forslund complex world — half-faded flower beds find its way on luxury prints, high-voltage tulips turn into bold color explosions, and her childhood gardens in the small fishing village Vik in southern Sweden comes to life on select garments.
”Flowers are present in all cultures, all around the world. I’ve encountered florals in the Arabic artistry – for example: in the patterns of carpets, calligraphy, to Japanese art which often worships nature. Also, in European classical paintings and architecture, where nature is always present. I dress strong, bold, and curious women. Women who just like me love life and are not afraid of what's new, different, a little messy or skewed. Most importantly, women who dare to find beauty in an almost withered flower bed.”— Maxjenny Forslund
The flower patterns has less to do with obvious femininity and gardening interests than one might assume at first observation of the collection. While the collection takes a different design direction, it still remains true to Maxjenny’s signature aesthetic: full of flower patterns, however, what Forslund would define as flower with power.
