Erwin Blumenfeld

Carven AW1415 Erwin Blumenfeld

The « Erwin Blumenfeld (1897-1969) : Photographs, drawings and photomontages » exhibition at Paris’ Jeu de Paume, from October 15, 2013 until January 26, 2014, has influenced the collagelike patterns of the Carven by Guillaume Henry Autumn/Winter 2014-2015 Show.

Other Erwin Blumenfeld-inspired collections : Amanda Wakeley Spring/Summer 2009 (this collection was based on the photographs of Erwin Blumenfeld and Nobuyoshi Araki), Jonathan Saunders Spring/Summer 2011 (this show paid tribute to the « gorgeous picture-postcard beauty » of the women in Erwin Blumenfeld’s ’40s and ’50s fashion photography).

Guillaume Henry asked Carven’s mohair manufacturer to reproduce the stringy aspect of cotton candy for the coats of the Carven Autumn/Winter 2013-2014 Show.

Moreover, the hair of the Christian Lacroix Couture Autumn/Winter 2004-2005 Show, by Odile Gilbert, evoked huge cotton candy.
