Man Ray

06 Jul

Man Ray’s works, including « Le Violon d’Ingres » (« Ingres’s Violin »), inspired several outfits of the Jean-Charles de Castelbajac Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 Show, « Woman / Ray ».

Other Man Ray-inspired collections : Badgley Mischka Pre-Fall 2008 (Man Ray’s pictures of Nancy Cunard were the starting point of this collection), Carolina Herrera Resort 2010, Catherine Malandrino Autumn/Winter 2009-2010 (the hairstyle, by Odile Gilbert, and the makeup, by Tom Pecheux, were inspired by Man Ray), Giambattista Valli Spring/Summer 2010 (influenced by the artists of the early 20th century, including Man Ray), Gucci Spring/Summer 2012 (the makeup, by Pat McGrath, and the hairstyle, by Luigi Murenu, were inspired, in part, by Man Ray), Jil Sander by Raf Simons Spring/Summer 2009 (Man Ray’s « Noire et Blanche / Black and White » was projected on the backcloth of the runway), Lanvin by Elie Top Autumn/Winter 2012-2013 (Man Ray-inspired belt with « lips » and « eye » brooches), Lewis Spring/Summer 2009 (some photographs by Man Ray were pinned on the inspiration board of this collection), Mandy Coon Autumn/Winter 2012-2013 (in part), Sonia Rykiel Pre-Fall 2012 (inspired by surrealism, including Man Ray’s photograph of Lee Miller’s mouth in « Observatory Time – The Lovers »).
