Niki de Saint Phalle

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.
