Adeam SS17.

Adeam’s Meditative and Expressive Calligraphy-Inspired Collection

Eliza Jordan

22 September 2016

Each season, Hanako Meada draws inspiration from distinct memories or cultural ties. For spring/summer 2017, Meada’s label Adeam presents the perfect translation of Japanese calligraphy. Known as being a trusted form of meditation, calligraphy also stands as a representation of the artist’s consciousness, as no corrections may be made once the paintbrush touches the paper. Wielding this thought, Adeam showcased various textures, motifs, and brushstroke prints in colors such as red, light blue, black, white, and beige. Drapes of silk, knitted knots, and chiffon pleats all create expressive comparisons to an artist’s particular creations on washi paper.

Also new this season for Adeam is a collaboration with IaM—a contemporary jewelry brand led by Ileana Makri, who recently named her youngest daughter Amalia Makri as the creative director. Originally launched in 2012, the brand offers an affordable luxury product, and is in great company this season with Adeam’s flouncy sophistication.
