Niki de Saint Phalle

09 Jun

Issa Resort 15

For the Issa Resort 2015 Collection, Blue Farrier has imagined female artists such as Niki de Saint Phalle and Barbara Hepworth holidaying in the sun.

Other Niki de Saint Phalle-influenced collections : Calla Spring/Summer 2011 (this collection featured a tile pattern which was based on Niki de Saint Phalle’s « Tarot Garden » in Tuscany), Roksanda Ilincic Spring/Summer 2013 (the paperlike and the plastic laminated fabrics in this collection, which also paid tribute to Josef Albers’ chromatic color variations, were an homage to Niki de Saint Phalle’s oeuvre), Vera Wang Spring/Summer 2009 (Niki de Saint Phalle was the starting point of this show).

To read about other Barbara Hepworth-inspired collections, search for the « Barbara Hepworth » post that I have published on May 18, 2013.

      Merci ! Moi aussi, je trouve cette association de couleurs très réussie : on retrouve vraiment l’esprit de Niki de Saint Phalle (j’ai tout de suite pensé à sa fontaine, située devant le centre Beaubourg) ! ❤

        Il suffit de taper “niki de saint phalle beaubourg” sur Google XD Mais, je l’avais vue “en vrai”, à Paris, c’est pour ça que j’y ai pensé tout de suite !

    beautiful top, we love the peaceful colors and the artistic print.
    we also love the idea of putting together an oversized, masculine-cut top with a short skirt, we find it very flattering and even comfortable!
    have a wonderful week our lovely inspiring fashionista!

      Like you, I love how this artistic silhouette plays with proportions (Issa had to rival Niki de Saint Phalle’s emblematic Nanas) ! Thank you so much, my fabulous fashion lovers, for your amazing comments ! May your week be as inspirational as your fab trip to the UK ! ❤

    Wow- beautiful. There’s something about it that makes you want to keep looking despite the “simple” design and pattern.
