Fernand Léger

Andrew Gn SS14 Fernand Léger

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.

    It’s that gorgeous coral colour and the fact the print isn’t symmetrical. Love! x

    Love it! I agree with the comment above, the coral color and the print make the dress.

      Oh, you’re so kind : Happy October to you too (I must confess that it’s not my favorite month, maybe because it leads us right into dark days …) ! But, as long as we have such art-inspired treats to admire, everything should be OK ! Be safe, cheers !!

      Thanks a lot !! I also like the idea of wearing a guitar (my favorite instrument) so close to your heart (because, to me, art, fashion and music really make the world go round !). xoxo
