A pioneer of abstraction. A mystic. A painter. Long forgotten until 50 years after her death, Hilma af Klint’s philosophies and her conceptual approach to shapes and colour as an expression of nature and the spiritual are spotlighted in Aje’s Spring Summer 24 collection.
Translated into dusty pinks mixed with vibrant shades and ivory, silhouettes are soft and rounded, mimicking Klimt’s abstracted forms.
There is a lightness in fabrication with organic textures – a sense of loved, natural, worn — and airy millefeuille layered gowns and delicate mushroom pleats.
Denim has had a painterly approach through two-tone blue, with the edge of colour softly fused to mimic the touch of the paintbrush.
