On the occasion of the first exhibition to present the oeuvre of Henri Matisse in Hungary, VYF’s limited-edition silk scarf capsule collection was made in collaboration with the Museum of Fine Arts in Budapest, so we can take home and wear a piece of the French painter’s heritage.
The idea of the cooperation is based on the shared paper cutout technique of the French painter and VYF: Matisse used it as an autonomous medium (“drawing with scissors”) in his final and most groundbreaking body of work, yet it is also the starting point and primary tool in the production process of VYF’s patterns.
The current limited collection was made in collaboration with the Museum of Fine Arts in Budapest and Lili Horváth, the museum’s independent curator and advisor responsible for corporate relations and brand cooperation, on the occasion of the first exhibition presenting the oeuvre of Henri Matisse in Hungary.
The collection, featuring 3 sizes and 3 different patterns, draws inspiration from the artist’s recurring motifs, e.g. birds, coral-like plant ornamentation, vivid nudes, indoor and outdoor immersion. Nevertheless, they appear in a recontextualized way, evoking the experiences of everyday life, seasoned with the usual hint of Eastern European atmosphere. The materials of the collection and the dying of the materials are made in Como, Italy, while the design and implementation are made in Budapest.
The collection can be purchased in the MúzeumShop or on the website of vyf.hu.
