WHO IS CHARLES RENNIE MACKINTOSH?



Charles Rennie Mackintosh (Scottish, 1868-1928) is one of the superstars of the Arts and Crafts Movement and became known as the ‘pioneer’ of the Modernist Movement.

Initially apprenticed as an architect, Mackintosh went to the Glasgow School of Art to pursue studies in art, design and drawing, and it was there that he met his future wife, Margaret MacDonald. Together with Herbert MacNair and Margaret’s sister Frances, they formed The Four, collaborating on designs for furniture, metalwork and illustration.

Their style was influenced by the sweeping lines of Art Nouveau, underpinned by the flat geometries of Japanese art and architecture.

His architectural practice in Glasgow declined, and in 1915, he and Margaret moved to London. He attempted to revive his practice in the new city but again struggled and failed, and he turned his hand increasingly to the design of furniture and textiles.


MACKINTOSH’S TEXTILE DESIGNS

His textile designs are not widely known unlike his architecture, furniture, and watercolors. Fortunately, many of his original drawings for textile designs, made between 1915 and 1923, have survived.

He also started to paint watercolours, with flowers as one of his favoured subjects…such as tulips, anemones, chrysanthemums, dahlias, tobacco flowers, daisies and, of course, his iconic stylized roses.

He mixed abstracted flowers with geometry in his textile designs around this time. They show bold, flat colours with strong lines and sinuous waves, but despite their vibrancy and originality, Mackintosh’s work continued to be relatively unknown.



MACKINTOSH’S ICONIC ROSES

Mackintosh had used stylised roses throughout his career and they became a sort of a logo for Mackintosh.

Fusing the sinuous forms of art nouveau with rugged Scots baronial motifs and exotic Japanese touches, their designs were a startling sight – too much for many British critics to stomach.

How times have changed!

He is now revered around the world for his innovative and creative architecture and designs!



ZIVA’S DESIGN CONCEPT

 

With Mackintosh’s flowing designs in the back of our minds, we reshaped and simplified the handkerchief design, to the human shape and scale …. but still using his basic colours and design elements including his iconic rose! We call it ‘Mackintosh Rose’.

We subdued the strong yellow of the hankie and added more black to appeal to today’s taste in colours.


Once stitched and lined, add a chain…….



 .....and wear it with your favourite jacket or little black dress!
