Fernand Léger’s 1926 « Blue Guitar and Vase » painting was one of the inspirations of the Andrew Gn Spring/Summer 2014 Show, titled « The Peggy Guggenheim Collection ».
Other Fernand Léger-influenced collections : Alexis Bittar Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 (Fernand Léger’s paintings were referenced in this jewelry collection), John Galliano Spring/Summer 2011 (one outfit of this show, which was an homage to Maria Lani, evoked the portrait of Maria Lani that Fernand Léger painted), Louise Gray Autumn/Winter 2012-2013 (some motifs were based on Fernand Léger’s work).
Moreover, Yves Saint Laurent, who owned Fernand Léger’s masterpieces in his art collection, also drew inspiration from the French painter.
