Weylandts has teamed up with Alwijn Burger, aka BLOMBOY, on a new collaborative installation entitled The Conservatory of Beauty.
The large-scale floral installation, consisting of paint-dipped hydrangeas and slangbos, was specifically created for the window display at the Weylandts Sandton City concept store.
“A lot of Blomboy’s work focuses on the preservation of flowers’ beauty — to try and capture it and extend the fleeting, delicate moment,” says Weylandts founder Chris Weylandt, who believes the installation directly ties in with the brand’s winter range.
“Our new winter range is about the colours of winter, the raw textures of nature and the beauty of long-lasting materials like leather and wood,” he adds. “Just like BLOMBOY celebrates beauty by finding ways to make it more permanent, Weylandts strives to celebrate nature’s beauty by using natural materials to create long-lasting functional objects which provide pleasure to the senses for many, many years.”
