    About The Work

    London-based designer Anya Marokko created this scarf for the exhibition "Chagall, Lissitzky, Malevich: The Russian Avant-Garde in Vitebsk, 1918-1922" on view at the Jewish Museum September 14, 2018 – Jan 6, 2019. The scarf is an extension of Marokko's 2 SQUARES womenswear collection. Minimalist sculptural drape and understated print are at the core of the design process creating an assertive feminine silhouette.
    For this line, Anya explored her origins by drawing inspiration from the progressive and modernist ideas of the Russian Avant-Garde. The movement reached its height at a transformational and turbulent time as the events of the Russian Revolution coincided with a profound period of creativity in the arts. The pure geometric cone shapes evoke Suprematist paintings, silhouette-altering pockets on skirts and trousers are reminiscent of the futurist costume designs of Kazimir Malevich and Varvara Stepanova.
    The print, featured on the scarf, brings to life the pioneering artist, graphic designer and typographer El Lissitzky’s brilliantly astute take on the historic events of the revolution in the illustrated book “A Suprematist Tale of Two Squares”.
