TOGÉTHER - TO GET THERE
Wool fabrics are reinterpreted in their tactility and uses, playing with emphasising contradictions. Snappy and technical hands for youthful suits, contrasting with the fluidity of fabrics for wool-silk blazers; very fine, almost transparent gauzes, super-compact weaves and academic designs proposed in three-dimensional surfaces. The colour palette draws inspiration from the paintings of the late 19th and early 20th century. The broad scale of blues is inspired by the works of Picasso and Casagemas; the yellows and ochres are taken from the paintings of Kirchner; the different associations of green, turquoise and yellow bring to mind the works of Laurencin, Seurat and Hokusai; finally, the particular colour shades used in the works of Donghi, Bocchi and Casorati are also reinterpreted.
The photographers Stelzner and Notman capture moments of work, while painter Degas portrays a group of people working in an office. Harmonies of black and white, chiaroscuros, ochre.
Live the weaves
Kirchner, Picasso and Casagemas paint groups of elegantly dressed people. Blacks and dark blues stand out and are emphasised with touches of yellow and beige.
Time to spend in good company, relaxing and enjoying. Picasso, Donghi, Laurencin depict the pleasure of being in the country, at the seaside, travelling. Whites, very light colours, natural colours, pastel shades of orange and pink.
Seurat, Hokusay, Bocchi evoke the beauty of outdoor life, enjoying free time. The shades of green and turquoise are in contrast with the yellows and reds.
Amiet, Casorati, Picasso. The shades of pastels inspire calm and gentleness. A sharing of intimacy.
