Born out of a vibrant complicity between the artist Carlos Cruz-Diez and the fashion designer, the new collection Oscar Carvallo Couture spring-summer 2014, Voyage cinétique II, has been introduced in Paris last Tuesday 21st January.
The designer and the artist already have collaborated in 2009 for an event in the Musée des Arts décoratifs and this new collection Couture spring-summer 2014 has been revealed through a second visual and sensorial trip.
Converting the woman's body to a piece of art, Oscar Carvallo introduces 35 looks whose prints, shapes, textures and details have been created from six paintings made exclusively for the collection by Carlos Cruz-Diez. With his special attention to details and finishes, Oscar Carvallo mixes the silk, muslin, silk gazar, ant lace with neoprene, mesh and metal strips. With the interplay of colours and movements, the fine jewellery created by the artist completes the bright colour looks.
A tribute to one of the great theoricists about colour, this collection puts into perspective the fascinating contribution of Carlos Cruz-Diez’s work as a whole.
