Diego Rivera

20 Sep

Prada SS14

Mexican muralists such as Diego Rivera influenced the huge portraits of powerful women, commissioned from 6 contemporary artists (Jeanne Detallante, El Mac, Mesa, Pierre Mornet, Gabriel Specter and Stinkfish), that decorated the set of the Prada Spring/Summer 2014 Show, and which were reproduced on various pieces (the 7th look, pictured above, revisited Jeanne Detallante’s « Beauty Masks » mural).

Other Diego Rivera-inspired collections : Alexis Mabille Couture Spring/Summer 2009 (the Odile Gilbert-styled braids of this show were based on a Diego Rivera’s painting), Steven Alan Autumn/Winter 2012-2013 Menswear (the « Diego Rivera : Murals for The Museum of Modern Art » exhibition, at New York’s MoMA, from November 13, 2011 until May 14, 2012, was the starting point of this collection, which featured handknitted pieces, based on Mexican blankets, that referenced Diego Rivera).

      Yes, Miuccia Prada’s creativity is on top form ! I’ve always loved underwear worn on clothes (on the catwalk, not in my personal life !) and this crown-like bra is stunning ! Have a fabulous weekend, my friend ! Cheers !!!

      Me too ! It’s my absolute favorite collection from the SS14 catwalks so far ! For an “art meets fashion” lover like me, it was a pure bliss to admire it ! As for these leg warmers, only Miuccia Prada can turn ugly items into covetable pieces ! XXX
