The designer Emma Pardos presents Pista Collection together with the photographers, Las Coleccionistas.
Development of the collection's aesthetic concept, product selection, print application, design, and production.
Pista is a limited edition collection of printed accessories, designed in Barcelona and produced in Spain, composed of three complementary elements: backpack, scarf, and socks.
The nexus of the collection is the print, made up of a series of objects organized on a colored background. Pista comes from the idea of cataloguing various discarded objects as a way of ordering city accumulation. These pieces, seemingly unrelated, acquire new meaning once grouped and sorted. The found clues (pistas) have a useonce again, creating new patterns through photographs.
In the collection different finishes and fabrics are combined. The pattern in the collection appears as a print applied to silk scarves, to polyester on the backpack, and as knitted fabric on the socks, (the original pieces being simplified in this case.)
The fabrics used range from natural to synthetic, contrasting the use of silk, knit, and polyester. The mix and choice of materials is intrinsically related to city life and they adapt to their use and to the function of the garments.
The result is a very colorful, unisex collection of designs reduced to their essentials, with references to sports aesthetics.
