After the Impact
Reflecting zeitgeist, the art world broadcasts and then leads us forward. Last year the Gucci turban of extraordinary colours encouraged us to create celebration where no other was found. It was a fascinating prescription for the time. While you cocoon: clash and create, they instructed.
This year we are after the impact. We’ve matured into a pandemic condition. We hold on to the altered way of being and go forward with new knowledge. The designers may simply be living this too, or they may have consciously identified something different, and are predicting our development into a 2022 way of being. They do seem to be prescribing: a new calm, a new kind of bold.
