Bottega Veneta AW1314

The lacquered raffia embroideries in the Bottega Veneta by Tomas Maier Autumn/Winter 2013-2014 Show are reminiscent of Pierre Soulages’ paintings.

Other Pierre Soulages-inspired collections : Anthony Vaccarello Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 (Pierre Soulages’ monochromatic textures inspired this collection), Helmut Lang by Michael and Nicole Colovos Resort 2011 (the printed chiffon dresses were partly based on Pierre Soulages), John Rocha Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 (this show was influenced by Pierre Soulages’ works), John Rocha Spring/Summer 2012 (this collection referenced Pierre Soulages’ paintings), Tara Jarmon Autumn/Winter 2008-2009 (this presentation paid tribute to the tones harmony in Pierre Soulages’ works).

Furthermore, the atmosphere of the Lancaster store (which opened during the Autumn of 2012, on 422, rue Saint-Honoré, in Paris), designed by Ora-Ïto, evokes Pierre Soulages’ artworks.
