Portuguese azulejos tiles as a source of inspiration for fashion-astrologer

Every fashion forecasting specialist decides this task on its own. Major trend agencies have special designers, who create completely new design lines and key forms. But for the fashion-astrologer chief instrument remains the word. So, for us it is very important to find the right association to complete the picture created by a verbal description. And here we come to the aid impressions gained during a trip to Portugal. Such a wonderful source of inspiration was the Portuguese azulejos tiles. It is a handpainted ceramic tile, often square shape, with size 14 x 14 cm, fired and glazed.

Where did this refined, restrained beauty? Originally, the word «azulejos» meant little polishing stone. It came in Portuguese language from Arabic. Using azulejos tiles is characteristic of the architecture of many southern countries: Italy, Spain, Greece, but in Portugal it has become a symbol of national art. The first tiles that appeared in Portugal, were brought from the Spanish-Moorish Seville around 1503 (the Royal Palace in Sintra, Conceicao convent in Beja). Seville at the time was a major center for the production of tiles. Ornament azulejos that time was carried out in accordance with Muslim tradition. Basically, it consists of stars and geometric patterns. This is what we were told in connection with the amazing beauty of the Palace of Alhambra in Granada. The development of technology majolica in Italy in the XVI century allowed to make drawings directly on the tile. From that point on it, new motifs, images of figures, plants, animals. From the middle of the XVII century in technology azulejos changes occur related to increasing imports from the Netherlands. Instead of the usual multicolored artists are beginning to use the contrast between white and cobalt blue, and as the subjects preferred to use genre scenes. In the period of Rococo (the second half of the XVIII century) azulejos tiles again became polychrome, with a predominance of gentle tones.
