For this Autumn/Winter 2010-2011, PAINKILLER presents “ Azure” the monotone collection. The palette consists of different shades of Blue such as Bleu de France, Cobalt, Navy, Palatinate and Glaucous, with accent colors: Grey, Black and White.
In noble french, Azure means Blue but this word, in fact, is originated from Persian language Lazhward, which was the name of a place where people mine the deep blue stone called Lapis Lazuli.
Azure is inspired by a story “The Ebony Horse” featured in “One Thousand and One nights”. Just like a classic bedtime story, it’s about one Persian prince on his white horse, fighting the evil sultan to rescue the beautiful princess.
One small trait makes this folklore outstandingly interesting and avantgarde in its time, the white horse is a robot.
Yes, a giant horse carved out of ebony that could fly. The ancient vision of a Harley Davidson+Private Jet! Rose to the sky like a Pegasus without wings!
