Various prints of the Aquilano.Rimondi Spring/Summer 2014 Show were based on Tahiti as seen on Paul Gauguin’s paintings.
Other Tahiti-inspired collections or items : Ascher London (in 1946, Henri Matisse’s « Océanie, La Mer » print, based on his memories of his 1940 trip to Tahiti, was reproduced on 30 scarves, that were released as part of the « Ascher Artist Squares Project »), Céline by Michael Kors Spring/Summer 2004 (the motifs of this collection referenced Tahiti’s vegetation), Issa Resort 2010 (Tahiti influenced the abstract patterns of this collection), Proenza Schouler Resort 2010 (Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough took inspiration from their then-recent voyage to Tahiti), Richard Nicoll Spring/Summer 2010 (the prints were based on early photographs of Tahiti), Trussardi by Milan Vukmirovic Spring/Summer 2011 (for this collection, Milan Vukmirovic drew inspiration from David Bailey’s photographs of Marie Helvin in Tahiti).
