Part 3 Researches/ Harrods, Christmas tree lights
Numerous lights in the harrods.(Night)
Lightbulbs reminds me the colorful Christmas tree lights.
Had some researches about the greenman, and its outfit quite looks similar with the bellboys at the hotel.
So got some image about the bellboys.
Greenman-> Reminds me of "Bellboy"
Wear sneakers. Feels lighter than the real greenmen/ bellboys
Grand Budapest hotel-bell boys.
The Idea "Christmas" comes from the Idea of light bulbs.
There are various things that represent "Christmas", but I got this Ideas from the lightbulb, so my researches starting from the Christmas tree with lightbulbs.
Christmas tree has triangular shape. Use triangular shape in my design.
Triangle-> links to the star shape
Use the blank middle-side of the Triangular ruler.
Christmas reminds me the santa clause.
I think the red outfits, like red hats, coat and pants represent the santa claus itself, but it also reminds me of the sleigh that they ride.
The Idea of Sleigh will be researched at the above.
Northern nomadic people. Co
"Northern nomadic native", which is Inuit comes from the idea of Santa Claus.
They both live at the northern part of the earth, and Inuits have their own unique lifestyle, costumes and cultures.
Especially, they wear lots of thick furry coat, or jacket so that might be the clue for my design.
Sleighs (interesting curvy shapes of bottom side)
This idea comes from the Inuit, which is the norther nomadic tribe.
The bottom part of chairs quite looks similar with the sleighs.
Rudolph (Get ideas from the sleighs)
Rudolph's horn-> looks like tree branches.
I had some collage works of sleighs and Northern tribe, and one of the collage reminds me of the "Nomadic archer".
I don't know how this will be connected to my final design, but I will research some images of "Archers".
After I researched the images of nomadic archers, their motions of shooting the arrow makes me interested in their motion itself.
So I simply draw their motions in my sketchbook (Drew the bone structures of the motion), and the bone structure reminds me of the "X-ray".
X-ray, the last Idea reminds me of some "Wounded" people, and the situation of some "Wounded" reminds me of "wounded soldier".
So I got the research images of wounded soldier, and that also reminds me of cast or some stains of blood.
I think those two clues will be connected to my design, and also, the army uniforms will be connected to my design too.
Below is the images of the army uniforms.
I worked for the wounded soldiers that I got last time, and while I worked, the blood stains of the wounded soldier reminds me the dotted patterns of ladybugs.
So I did some image researches of ladybugs.
And think that circular red/black patterns will be one of the sources of my designs.
Kusama yayoi's artwork.
Kusama yayoi is really famous because of her "dotted pattern" artwork.
When I did some works using the dotted patterns of ladybugs, that reminds me of Kusama's work.
Her artwork will be one of the important source in my fashion design.
