Hervé Léger by Max Azria SS14

Body art from Polynesia influenced the patterns of the Hervé Léger by Max Azria Spring/Summer 2014 Show.

Other Polynesia-inspired collections : Céline by Ivana Omazic Spring/Summer 2009 (the motifs of this show were based on Polynesian tattoos), Christian Dior by John Galliano Spring/Summer 2011 (the Polynesian heroines of this show sported evening gowns in a color palette which was inspired by Paul Gauguin), Dsquared² Spring/Summer 2014 (according to Dean and Dan Caten, the set for this show was a « Polynesian paradise »), Jean Paul Gaultier Spring/Summer 2000 Menswear (titled « Gauguin en goguette », this collection was based on the French Polynesia painted by Paul Gauguin), Monique Péan Spring/Summer 2011 (this jewelry line was influenced by the creamy colors of the paintings that Paul Gauguin made in French Polynesia).

Rebecca Horn

Rebecca Horn’s installation of 2 shotguns that fire blood-red paint at each other inspired the finale of the Alexander McQueen Spring/Summer 1999 Show, named « N° 13 », when 2 huge robots projected paint on Shalom Harlow’s dress.

Another Rebecca Horn-influenced collection : Anthony Vaccarello Spring/Summer 2011 (this collection was partly based on Rebecca Horn’s « Knuggle Dome for James Joyce » work, which features 8 scalpels, each one adorned with a letter on the blade, to form the « L.O.V.E. » and « H.A.T.E. » words).
