FoA. launches its first Bag Collection at X BANK
FoA. releases its new bag collection during an in-store experience at X BANK Amsterdam on June 22nd from 6pm-8pm. The multi-brand store is the exclusive point-of-sale for the bags and accessories.
Moving through liquid modernity
Sociologist Karlijn Boersma and photographer Jeftha Pattikawa were inspired by the idea of Liquid Modernity for the design and development of the FoA. bag and accessories collection.
Our lives are in constant flux: we are more mobile, work at different places with different people and change social relationships faster than ever before. Sociologist Bauman describes our current society as modern and liquid. Nothing is ever stable and everything is possible. We move from place to place and seem to be permanent ‘tourists’.
The inspiration has been captured in a series of analogue photography in which shapes and lines have no clear start or end point. Karlijn has translated the visual elements of the photography into a range of wearable designs.
The bags are sustainable and timeless. Filled with the personal belongings of the wearer they can visualize a form of stability in this Liquid Modernity.
