Paul Gauguin

Jen Kao Resort 14























The Jen Kao Resort 2014 Collection explores the tension between Paul Gauguin and Jean-Michel Basquiat’s artworks.

Other Paul Gauguin-inspired collections : Céline by Michael Kors Spring/Summer 2004 (some prints, with hibiscus flowers and yucca leaves, echoed Paul Gauguin’s paintings), Christian Dior by John Galliano Spring/Summer 2011 (the Polynesian heroine of this show sported evening gowns in a color palette which was inspired by Paul Gauguin), Douglas Hannant Resort 2010 (this collection featured Paul Gauguin-style motifs), Jean Paul Gaultier Spring/Summer 2000 Menswear (titled « Gauguin en goguette », this collection was based on the French Polynesia painted by Paul Gauguin), L’Wren Scott Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 (this collection was named after Paul Gauguin’s « A Tropical Conversation / Une conversation tropicale » painting), Monique Péan Spring/Summer 2011 (this jewelry line was influenced by the creamy colors of the paintings that Paul Gauguin made in French Polynesia), Sabyasachi Spring/Summer 2009 (Paul Gauguin was one of the references of this collection).

To read about Jean-Michel Basquiat-inspired collections, search for the « Jean-Michel Basquiat » post that I published on March, 31, 2012.
