Eddy Anemian’s collection, which has been rewarded the 2014 H&M Design Award, and which was unveiled on January 28, 2014, at Stockholm’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, is based on Tilda Swinton in Luca Guadagnino’s « I Am Love » and on the paintings of Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres.

To read about other Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres-inspired collections, search for the « Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres » post that I have published on December 22, 2013.
