Oscar Niemeyer

10 Sep

Oscar Niemeyer was one of the inspirations of the Pedro Lourenço Autumn-Winter 2010-2011 Collection.

Other Oscar Niemeyer-inspired collections : Dries Van Noten Autumn/Winter 2009-2010 Menswear (the pure lines of some outfits echoed Oscar Niemeyer’s works), Gucci by Frida Giannini Spring/Summer 2010 Menswear (white, used for numerous pieces, evoked Oscar Niemeyer’s architecture), H.Stern Autumn/Winter 2010-2011 (his drawings influenced the jewels of the « Oscar Niemeyer Collection », in partnership with the Brazilian architect, reiterated in 2011 and 2012), Kipling Spring/Summer 2010 (the shapes of the bags were inspired in part by Oscar Niemeyer’s buildings in Brazil), Roksanda Ilincic Autumn/Winter 2008-2009 (moreover, in the September 2012 issue of « Vogue », Roksanda Ilincic confesses that her dream home is Oscar Niemeyer’s Casa das Canoas, in Rio de Janeiro).

Moreover, other designers are influenced by Oscar Niemeyer, especially Burak Uyan (for his shoe line, Aperlaï), Francisco Costa (for the Calvin Klein Collection), Narciso Rodriguez (for his own line), Serge Cajfinger (for his line, Paule Ka) and Rick Owens (for his own line).

    PS: I didn’t just ‘found’ your blog by the way. I followed it via your gravator on my post for Diana Vreeland.
