- The Bauhaus Collection
Inspired by Bauhaus, crafted by Jaeger:
As the inspiration for the designs behind the Jaeger SS19 collection, we are celebrating this iconic period of design and innovation by taking the Jaeger woman on a journey of culture and travel through prints, fabrics, jacquard and knitwear. Design, architecture, paintings, textile art and costumes born out of the Bauhaus movement were studied and used as inspiration to create intricate weaves and geometric prints that celebrate the history of Bauhaus, while bringing the designs into the 21st century.
The iconic Bauhaus-style squares, grid print and circles feature in our Jacquard knits and coats, while graphic black and whites are reimagined in our statement silk Jaeger logo and geo-circle shirts.
The clean lines and geometric cuts of many of the SS19 designs evoke the blocky shapes found in the architecture of Le Corbusier or the furniture designs of Marcel Breuer. When laid flat, these pieces are stark, simple rectangles and squares, but when worn they realize the fluid, soft-tailoring Jaeger is known for.
Powerful primary colours seen in the textile and paint works of Anni Albers and Piet Mondrian form the basis of the SS19 colour palette. Fresh, bright tones of red, blue and yellow encourage the Jaeger woman to be bolder with colour, to experiment with new cuts and not to compromise on design.
