Balmain Resort 15

The Balmain by Olivier Rousteing Resort 2015 Collection, whose palette is based on David Hockney’s paintings of Los Angeles, is partly inspired by New Mexico’s Navajo blankets.

Other New Mexico-influenced collections : Felicity Brown Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 (this collection made reference to Zuñi masks), Louis Vuitton by Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2006 (in part), Tom Ford Autumn/Winter 2014-2015 (specifically Santa Fe, New Mexico).

To read about other David Hockney-inspired collections, search for the « David Hockney » post that I have published on June 1, 2012.

    WOW! now that is exquisite work and it would be amazing to wear. I would bet the weight of the beading would feel so substantial.
