Saudade Chineso

PRESS NOTE

AN EXPERIMENT BETWEEN BRANDS:

Saudade Atelier is a fashion brand based in Barcelona. Established in
2013 by Marcelo Rodriguez, its pieces have been spotted in music videos
for artists such as Tame Impala, The Vaccines or Rosalía. Amongst the
aesthetical foundations of the brand, we find classic shapes with an edgy
twist and a special passion for striped patterns.

Pattern Chineso ́s creations are the result of hand produced collections
that aim to simulate the thorough and hard-work methods of systematic
reproduction of the Asian industry. This art collective introduces us to
a project that focuses on the beauty of fake and decodes the authen-
ticity of what lies behind counterfeit, as a metaphor of contemporary
consumption.

For this collaboration, the Spanish and chinese designers worked toge-
ther to create a collection on which both brands put together their own
narratives and codes, but also to find common solutions combining their
resources in order to create artistic but functional pieces.

With a main focus on concepts such as re-designing traditional shapes,
recycling, zero waste or no-gender fashion, they create an atmosphere
where the new and the old blend on a personal vision towards the fashion
world.

Traditional fabrics as oilcloth and sattler awning are used to construct
waterproof jackets and ultra resistant bags. The limited edition t-shirts
(numbered) mix a signature Saudade Atelier design as a canvas with hand
sprayed graphics by Pattern Chineso. The design and experimentation
process lasted almost 2 years.

The collection was ready to be displayed on one of the biggest mul-
ti-brand stores in Barcelona but, due to this exceptional crisis we are all
struggling with, the artists decided to launch it virtually.



品牌之间的实验:

Saudade Atelier是一家位于巴塞罗那的时尚品牌。由马塞
洛·罗德里格斯(Marcelo Rodriguez)于2013年创立,其作
品在音乐录影带中为艺术家如Tame Impala,The Vaccines
或Rosalía所发现。在品牌的美学基础中,我们发现具有前
卫曲折和对条纹图案特别热爱的经典形状。

中国模式的创作是手工收集的结果,目的是模拟亚洲行业
系统性复制的彻底而努力的方法。这个艺术团体向我们介
绍了一个项目,该项目侧重于伪造的美,并解释了伪造背
后的真实性,以此作为当代消费的隐喻。

为了进行这种合作,西班牙和中国的设计师共同创造了一
个集合,两个品牌将各自的叙述和代码放在一起,还找到
了结合其资源的通用解决方案,以创作出艺术而又实用的
作品。

他们主要关注重新设计传统形状,回收,零浪费或不分性
别的时尚等概念,从而营造了一种氛围,新旧元素融合了
对时尚世界的个人见解。
传统的织物,如油布和草帽遮阳篷,被用来制造防水夹克
和超耐久的袋子。限量版T恤(编号)将标志性的Saudade
Atelier设计融入画布,并带有中国模式的手工喷涂图案。设
计和实验过程持续了将近2年。

该系列已经准备好在巴塞罗那最大的多品牌商店之一中展
出,但是由于这场危机,我们都在苦苦挣扎,艺术家决定
以虚拟方式推出该系列。
可悲的是,大事件被推迟到局势得到控制为止。
