FIELDS x Shakil Solanki Sweater in Wool & Mohair

R 5,750

Colour: Shakil Solanki

This soft, mid-weight, round-neck sweater is knitted in a Merino wool and kid mohair blend yarn.

The striking design was created in collaboration with Shakil Solanki, a Cape Town based artist. Solanki's distinctive style juxtaposes painterly lines with intricate motifs and draws on classical Eastern art. Solanki’s piece for FIELDS was inspired by a frame in Luca Guadagnino's 2015 film The Bigger Splash, which took inspiration from a David Hockney painting with the same title. It depicts an anonymous diver immersed in a pool against a lush Los Angeles background. Solanki said of his artwork: “... the sinuous lines of the swimming pool’s bed swirl beneath the waters’ depths before the soft surface is dispersed in a great wave of dancing liquid forms... This fleeting, ephemeral moment is protracted - vitality and emotion delineated in crystal focus.”
