Cy Twombly

12 Jan

Maki Oh SS13The Maki Oh Spring/Summer 2013 Collection was partly based on Cy Twombly’s creative process.

Other Cy Twombly-inspired collections : Erdem Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 (Cy Twombly has influenced the color mixes of this show, which evoked an artist’s wife who tore her husband’s canvases and assembled the pieces to make her clothes), J. Crew Spring/Summer 2011 Menswear (the bone and rust tones of this collection were based on Cy Twombly’s works), Nina Ricci by Lars Nilsson Spring/Summer 2005 (some pieces were inspired by the colors of Cy Twombly’s drawings), Proenza Schouler (Cy Twombly has influenced some pieces that Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough have created for their label).

    I love the colors and the fringe, so cool for Summer! As much as I admire shift dresses, they just don’t do it for curves. (The eyes would bulge, the neck would collapse, the shoulders would be doing a shimmy.) 🙂

      This beautiful dress makes me think of 1920s Charleston and the skinny girls, with no curves at all, but, also, as soon as I saw the fringes, I’ve thought about your rockin’ Ozzy video ! XO

      Merci, Ed ! It was a last minute change, as I had chosen an Erdem dress, but this one seemed a fresher choice, and I fell in love with its originality ! Xxx

    Forgive my lack of appreciation for this one… and take a peek at the toes of the shoes– one with a toe strap, one without? Guess that matches the fringed hem. No matter- she can carry it! I always imagine dancing when I see this style of dress…would be so freeing on the dance floor– lots of shimmy room underneath (in the right places) Dievca!

      Yes, that would be so liberating to dance (with the fringes dancing in the air too !) and I guess that embracing the asymmetry of this look (yes, even the toes are asymmetrical, it makes me think of Helena Bonham Carter’s unconventional shoes on the red carpet !) must have been a very liberating creative process too !

    Houston has what is probably the largest collection of Cy Twombly’s work. Open to the pubic for free.

    I bet the wife made even better art out of torn hubbies pieces, we usually do, hihihi … love the originality of this fun dress — very 1920’s, and her shoes and the fringe dress detail are absolutely fabulous! XOXO

      LOL ! Yes, this wonderful dress is retro and really modern in the way it plays with asymmetrical details ! A very fun piece of artistic fashion ! XOXO
