« Art goes beyond the limits in which time would like to compress it, and indicates the content of the future. »
(Vasilij Kandinskij, Point and line to plane)
In the early years of the twentieth century, Kandinskij deepens a research on painting, which will observe in “Composition VIII” the realization and implementation of his theory on the use of color. According to him, in fact, the movement of color can have two possible effects on the viewer: a physical effect, superficial and based on momentary sensations, determined by the registration, by the retina, of a dye, but also, and above all , a psychic effect due to the spiritual vibration through which the color reaches the soul. Kandinskij uses a musical metaphor to explain this effect: “color is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is a piano with many strings”, the movement of color, therefore, is a vibration that touches the strings of one’s interiority. One of the most fascinating aspects in Kandinskyij’s work, surely, is the idea that there can be a correspondence between sound and color in terms of harmony.
Orequo, in its Pitture collection, inspires the Metropolitan Geometries pocket square to this work, making the image more decisive and energetic through a blue background in which the lines and geometric figures, apparently randomly positioned, stand out. Actually, they follow a precise musical, harmonious and balanced sequence. In fact, in the pochette, each color combination is carefully studied, as well as the arrangement of the shapes on the plane: the arch is a symbol of junction and continuity, while the broken lines create pauses and discontinuities. In addition, the figures have a precise meaning, for example the triangle is a masculine and spiritual form, as handed down from antiquity, however, the circle for the painter “is a tension that carries within itself infinite tensions”.
Therefore, Orequo enhances, through this pochette, concepts such as harmony, inner strength and freedom, very important and connected aspects, providing an added value to an accessory that combines beauty and quality in itself.
