Francis Picabia was one of the Dadaists who were referenced in the motifs of the Carven by Guillaume Henry Autumn/Winter 2014-2015 Show.

Thanks a lot ! I’m glad that you’ve noticed the gloriously pink shoes because they really surprised me too ! As for the exquisite pattern, it really looks like a cubist collage !

OH, I want this dress. Along with the shoes! Love the zipper. I wonder what the shoe heel looks like. Gorgeous. T. (Didn’t Francis Picabia’s wife, Gabrielle help Schiaparelli get started? I think so. YES. I just checked the Philadelphia Museum of Art website. Gabrielle introduced “Schiap” to Poiret. Good thing!)

Good thing indeed ! Thank you for this interesting fact about Francis Picabia’s wife ! It’s funny that you mention the zipper because I’ve magnified the picture to see where it stopped (it’s very hard to tell actually, because the pattern seems to cover it !). I couldn’t find a picture of the shoe heel though … Have a gorgeous weekend !

Thanks for looking for the shoes! I always check out the neckline first. Will I be able to breathe, I ask myself. Confession: I’ve always had a crush on Francis Picabia. Dashing but a bit of a Dandy, I think! T. (Fun Post! Enjoy the weekend!)

Merci beaucoup ! PS : I’ve always loved dandies !

More art-inspired fashion with fabulous graphics–adore modern art from the early 20th century…
and interesting that the peep-toe heels are reminiscent of those years too…
simply adore the scope that one’s imagination can travel via Surrealism…
oh how your blog makes my heart sing!! ~xo

I’m truly ecstatic to make your (he)art sing ! XO

Oh I so adore how you took the word “heart” and cleverly made it into two…
yes, “he” (Francis Picabia) and his “art” do make my (he)art sing…
and so do our delightful tête-à-têtes~ ♥

Fantastic dress..a superb work of art. And those shoes ❤ I love Carven. XoXo

Me too, THX ! Maybe that we should rename this sublime brand “cARTven” ! ❤
March 28, 2014 at 10:27 pm
love that dress! And Carven’s collection was great, too!
March 29, 2014 at 1:22 pm
Thanks a lot ! Guillaume Henry’s artistic references are so subtly chic ! Xxx

I wonder does the yellow bloom zip apart. Love the length with the velvety blush shoes–very Biba! x
March 29, 2014 at 2:01 pm
Very Biba indeed, thanks ! I was intrigued by the zipper too so I enlarged the photo : this wonderful pattern doesn’t zip apart but seems to cover the zipper ! X

such a cool dress. besides the gorgeous graphic design, we love that it has a more comfortable and accessible silhouette!

Thanks a lot ! It’s really cool that you use the word “accessible” because, unlike other Parisian brands, Carven’s pieces are pretty “accessible” (at least, according to Ines de la Fressange) ! XOXO
