On the Road Again, Fall Winter Collection 2022 by Tata Christiane
1. Traveling away from one’s home or usual place of work once again, as after a break.
2. Having resumed the act of driving to some destination, as after a stop.
“And I can’t wait to get on the road again
On the road again
Goin’ places that I’ve never been
Seein’ things that I may never see again
And I can’t wait to get on the road again” Willie Nelson
On the Road Again collection has several source of inspirations.
First was the perspective of travelling after the long pause of Covid restriction. Conducting to question and reflect on what travel mean to me, what travel bring us as human being, how it enrich us a human by the contact to the other and the other cultures.
Even if it has as well it s dark side and the legitimate question of the cost of the journey in ecological terms. But this should only encourage us to think more consciously about it and to consider other ways of travelling: literature, poetry, music for example, give us access to other people and other cultures.
But also by reducing the distances of travel and choosing slower means such as walking, train etc. And to discover our surroundings.
The line is thus inspired by the diversion of some basics and by a certain travel culture, large and confortable shape, earthy color but also primary colors.
Proust’s phrase appeals to the inner journey of memory and art.
Mallarmé’s sentence is a poetic paradox of chance and wandering.
Another inspiration is retro futurism seen in my own way: I wondered how retro futurism today would represent a future that is perhaps less futuristic but closer to the human and the earth, less extravagant in terms of technological inventions but more in the beauty and our earthly dimension.
Finally the reflexive suggestion “define what you need” which I think we need to explore in more depth.
