Arsutoria: "Wabi Sabi" Bag Trend SS17

Wabi-Sabi represents a comprehensive Japanese view of the world or aesthetics centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The new Jap Wabi-Sabi is Wi Fi, Low-Tech, Industrial organic with a mix of pop colour. The new imperfection unites the chaotic environments of urban suburbs with high-tech folkish styles. A new intellectual street style that interprets the icons of the territory, recycling and reinterpreting them, as do interior designers. Industrial moods and technical contaminations for a new culture of underground styles that rebel against the current rules. Ancient Japanese and Urban Pop. Mexican folk and post-urban. Ethnic Paris. Creative Berlin. Beirut flea market.

Colors
The industrial shades of used and aged surfaces combine with cold and transparent digital shades. Imperfect and irregular colors, broken by ripples and shading effects. Dirty and saturated neutral colours combined with unusual shades such as salmon, peach orange and orange pink, cold like beauty powder and transparent like video colours.

Materials
The naturalness of the materials is combined with vegetable finishes and effects that highlight the richness of the bottoms. Artificial and hi-tech folk contaminations. Leather and fabrics are full of processes taken from the urban, vegetable and decor world. A blend of raw and synthetic where the imperfections are intensified as though they were specially designed decorations. The metal-free world is enriched with interpretations of new textures and thicknesses, to highlight brighter and more attractive colours. Intense and fluorescent colours are mixed with hand-dyed processes. Folk details with recycled materials. A mix and match that enriches the materials.

Bag Shapes
Very soft and unstructured volumes. Inspired by bohemian gypsy volumes of retro-style bags, shoulder bags, retro backpacks, interpreted with rich craft details and ironic and colourful patterns. Fringes, weaves, stitching and trimmings are the strengths of the casual street bags, which are also a bit naive.
