Tamara de Lempicka

Dries Van Noten SS14

For his Spring/Summer 2014 show, Dries Van Noten thought about how iconic women such as Tamara de Lempicka would dress today.

Other Tamara de Lempicka-inspired collections : Nina Ricci by Peter Copping Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 (the mood board of this show featured artwork by Tamara de Lempicka), Olivia Rubin Autumn/Winter 2009-2010 (this collection drew inspiration from Tamara de Lempicka’s portraits and from New York cityscapes), Rachel Roy Pre-Fall 2012 (the work of Tamara de Lempicka was one of the references of this collection), Ralph Lauren Autumn/Winter 2005-2006 (the caps were based on Tamara de Lempicka’s 1925 « Autoportrait »), Versace Autumn/Winter 2008-2009 Menswear (this show paid homage to the way Tamara de Lempicka painted the men in her life).

Moreover, the name of the Lolita Lempicka brand, created in 1984, is a tribute to both Vladimir Nabokov’s « Lolita » and Tamara de Lempicka.
