Sol LeWitt

04 May

Nonoo Resort 14Sol LeWitt’s paintings have influenced the Nonoo Resort 2014 Collection.

Other Sol LeWitt-inspired collections or Sol LeWitt’s collaborations : Carlos Miele Autumn/Winter 2009-2010 (the folded details of this collection evoked Sol LeWitt’s works ; years before presenting this show, Carlos Miele had collaborated with Sol LeWitt), Casertano (Sol LeWitt’s artworks were one of the inspirations of Alex Casertano’s designs), Dries Van Noten Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 (a « spiderweb » print evoked Sol LeWitt’s paintings), Heimstone Spring/Summer 2012 (this collection was partly inspired by Sol LeWitt’s cubes obsession), Kimberly Ovitz Spring/Summer 2011 (Sol LeWitt’s squares obsession partly influenced this collection), Kimberly Ovitz Resort 2011 (one velvet dress had a Sol LeWitt-inspired geometric pattern), Louis Vuitton (in 1988, Sol LeWitt created for Louis Vuitton the « Rainbow / Arc-en-ciel » silk scarf, decorated with striae, and « The Earth is Round / La Terre est ronde » silk scarf, ornated with a big circle), Nina Ricci (in 1989, Sol LeWitt designed the packaging of the « Ricci Club » perfume).

      Thank you ! These blue gradient pants are so beautifully graphic that they can’t be eclipsed by the Adidas® slides ! XD

    The linear ombré graphics are fabulous, especially with the sheer component…
    and adore the mix of Adidas footwear; boasting their own set of graphics…
    and the Slides are totally cool—so clean and sleek!! ~xo

    at the risk of offending…this looks like a paint sample piece… or perhaps it is just the slides negative influence… Off with the slides!!!

    The slides are definitely an acquired taste 🙂
    Interesting rendition of stripes though.

      Yes, thank you, the stripes are much more interesting than the slides, because they truly pay homage to Sol LeWitt abstract masterpieces ! XD

      Thank you for this sweet comment ! I love the fabric too and how the stripes bring something really powerful to the whole silhouette ! You have looked at this piece with your greatly artistic sensibility ! Have a great day ! Mayann
