Talking Photo(s)

Calter gave a nod to Russian geometric abstract artist Kazimir Malevich in her fall collection. For this ensemble Calter takes Malevich's circa late-1920s/early-'30s painting "Complex Presentiment: Half-Figure in a Yellow Shirt" almost literally, by putting a yellow shirt dress on a figure (the model).

The British designer Duro Olowu told ARTINFO that this 1911 Egon Schiele painting, "Self -Portrait with Peacock Waistcoat, Standing" reminded him of Jean-Michel Basquiat — and that it played a role in helping him create his collection. The tailored black coat and spotted leather gloves of this look definitely show a resemblance to Schiele’s self-portrait. (ARTINFO)
