WomenClothingToday Hundertwasser Collection

Hundertwasser has been widely popular for his unique style of painting and architecture, who used the power of his art to spread the message of importance of living in harmony with nature. The eccentric, self-advertising artist from Vienna is a symbolic figure for living a non-conformist life, who dedicated his individual creativity to raise awareness about environmental protection.

He was so much in love with artwork that he painted wherever he was – on the road, in the garden, at home, on a train, in a café or restaurants, or just anywhere – and had no studio. An eccentric painter, he would simply spread the canvas flat in front of him and start painting, rather than sketching on an easel.

Widely known as a self-determined alternative existence ambassador, Hundertwasser was a unique artist – different from painters of his times. His eccentricity reflected fairly well in his paintings, which were done in oil and with egg tempera, using different pains in a single painting. He would also use shiny lacquers and put each painting next to the other to see how each of them were distinct in colors and texture.

He experimented with different techniques, loved painting on used wrapping papers, pieces of plywood, switchboard, and invented new painting techniques. At Women Clothing Today, on Hundertwasser’s anniversary, we have decided to pay homage to the great artist, who expressed his unruly artistic vision in pictorial art, philosophy, environmentalism, flags, postage stamps, and clothing, by dedicating an entire collection to his artwork, which uses bright colors and organic forms, setting new fashion trends.

Like diamonds, hand painted silk scarves are forever. I happened to meet a lady in her mid 40’s at the Museum of Modern art in Vienna on one of my recent visits there. She was visibly impressed and enthralled by the works of Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, and Claes Oldenburg. In fact, classical Modern works of art by Piet Mondrian and Pablo Picasso held her spellbound. At the end of the tour, she turned sad and said, “I wish I could take these paintings home because I found my share of peace by simply looking at the paintings.” I said, “Did you know that now you can wear beautifully created art in the form of silk scarves?” She said, “No, does something like that exist?” That was the beginning of a long conversation.

After a few months, she called me up to tell me how her life has changed thanks to the hand painted silk scarves. How she found her share of peace in the several shades of blue, red, orange, and green. How much she loves the paintings on the scarves and how it has affected her personality, attitude, and behaviour in a positive manner. I was amused but I knew that for someone who loves art, this was probably as close as someone can get to something that they desire the most and will treasure for a lifetime.  Is it the beauty of art or painting or is it the hidden beauty within each of us that is actually brought out through these exquisitely handmade silk scarves?

I think it is a mix of both. Somewhere deep down within us, there is a beauty that is waiting to come out, waiting to be appreciated, waiting to be embraced. When you wear something as beautiful as the subtleness of winter flowers or the muted brightness of tulips then it transforms something within you. The colours  bright or pale, work their magic on our soul and open the doors of our mind. They relax us from within so that when we face the world, we brim with a sense of high self esteem.

The fact that these hand painted silk scarves have been created to give us a soul experience within a formal environment or in an occasion makes them true works of art.  It is an accessory that you can wear for any occasion or event, including Christmas and Thanksgiving.  The beauty of the hand painted silk scarves lies in its ability to melt and become an integral part of you!
