What is the classic? Traditional, elegant and culturally rich heritage. Classic is not old-fashioned but refers to things that value does not change over time. Perhaps it is because we are learning and loving for centuries past because it is an exemplary and eternal artwork.
When we talk about classic, we think of music first. Music that can be heard and appreciated rationally or emotionally without using the eyes is a field that touches the most creative part that we can enjoy. Music can be a medium that inspires us, makes us feel comfortable, and connects invisible imagery to other fields of art.
ACCRUE’s 2019 FW Collection is based on the theme of ‘Classic’ with the desire to rediscover the inspirations received from music by today’s sensibility and to make fashionable glasses as of today, after 10 years and even 20 years later.
Moon light (Clair de Lune)
French musician ‘Debussy’ is a representative impressionist.
Debussy composes ‘Moonlight’ with the motif of Verlaine’s poem ‘La lune blanche’.
As impressionist painters noticed the changing landscape at any moment,
the music of “Debussy” by expressing the feeling of a certain moment with music called ear listening painting.
ACCRUE’s “Moonlight” like the moon rising in the cloudy sky.
G string (Air on the G)
Bach, the world-famous musician born in Germany, has ideally combined German traditional counterpoints, Italian harmonic and melodic elements into his music.
‘Air on the G’ is a beautiful music that maximizes the lyricism of the violin. Inspired by a four stringed violin, ACCRUE’s “G string” adds a classy style to the nose pads-less style.
Trout (Piano Quintet op.114, D.667’The Trout’)
Schubert, an Austrian musician, completed the genre of music by combining poetry and music.
‘The Trout’, which expresses the emotions of poetry with the music of reason by shifting the image of poetry to music intuitively, is a puff of emotions that present pleasant feeling just by listening.
ACCRUE’s ‘Trout’ is homage to Schubert’s wide oval glasses.
Exhibition (Pictures at an Exhibition)
The piano suite of Russian composer Mussorgsky’s ‘Pictures at an Exhibition’
was Inspired to describe each painting musically by the designs, sketches and coloring exhibited at the posthumous exhibition of the famous architect Hartmann, who was his friend and died at a young age. The creativity that expresses his work with the piano melody is amazing.
The melody in the frame of exhibition was retained into Accrue’s ‘Exhibition.
Canon (Canon in D Major)
‘Pachelbel’ was a German composer and organist, influencing many musicians. ‘Canon’ is a type of polyphonic music that imitates the frontal melody.
From the Renaissance era, the Canon style music, which crosses singing the same melody, was composed. ‘Cannon’ is a music that makes us feel empty but beautiful in harmony through continuous repetition of the theme melody.
ACCRUE’s ”Canon” is a design that harmonizes the simple detailed round metal frame added with thin acetates like a variation chord.
Choral (‘Choral’ Symphony No.9 in D Minor)
‘Choral’ is a masterpiece of the best musician ‘Beethoven’ and it is the first symphony containing the human voice. ‘Choral’ is special because the music was composed after Beethoven lost his hearing. After the performance was over, as he could not hear the applause of the audience, Beethoven could recognize his performance was successful
after noticing the audience’s reaction by eyes.
ACCRUE’s “Choral” was designed with contrasting thin acetate on a perfect geometric hexagon metal shape, just like making the 3rd movement of ‘Choral’ slower and the 4th movement more intense and impressive.
The Polish musician Chopin, known as the ‘poet of the piano’, has left many free
and unconventional works of his own leading the age.
Nocturne, a song of the night with a mystical sensibility, shows the best lyricism as the piano plays, just as if the piano singing.
ACCRUE’s “Nocturne” was designed with a tranquil night’s mood with a round moon.
The music of Mozart is made by the melody, hearing not by the ear, but by
the whole body. Mozart was an Austrian composer and performer in the
18th century who lived a short life, but left a lot of works with genius talent.
The ‘Fantasia’ introduces Baroque style and consists of four songs, which are improvisational, and freely unfolding frequent transpositions and a contrasting expression of music.
ACCRUE’s “Fantasia” expresses classical square shape, more freely and personally.
