Shield your eyes; it may hurt to look. Yet you can’t look away! Well, you’ve been warned. When Orli commits to going bright, she doesn’t mess around. You can’t talk about the Sixties without talking about symbols of peace and love, and you can’t talk about symbols of peace and love without talking about Peter Max. The painter and poster artist helped define the era’s aesthetic with dream-like images and brazenly bright colors. The Love Dove, inspired by Max’s art, particularly his paintings “LOVE” and “DOVE,” is as bright as bright can be. Orli says, “These colors are ridiculously bright and happy. It almost hurts to look directly at them, but they have the space to stand out. Everyone needs something ridiculously bright and happy.”
Some say the Sixties and the Seventies were the best of times. Some say they were the not-the-best of times. Pretty much all say they were also the colorful of times. Dramatic change affected everything, from society and politics to music, art, and fashion. Social movements reflected the progressivism of a modernizing global society, cultural movements reflected youth rebelling against older ideas and styles, and lively, striking color exploded everywhere. Costume jewelry packed with bright hues and bold beads became pervasive, the more audacious, the better. Kaleidoscopic pays homage to this massive rush of peace, love, and style with high-voltage shades and shapes and a distinct combination of both vintage and modern lines.
