Jasper Garvida, speaks Art in His S/S 2012 Collection. Fashion Is Art.
|Jasper Gardiva S/S12|
Jasper Garvida, designer of luxury women's wear, presents 'Autour d'un point', the S/S 2012 collection.
It's a collection of contrasts: the morning sun and the twilight shade, the city and the vale, the darkest tones and the lightest colours.
Jasper's main inspiration for this collection is the individual vision of Diana Vreeland, legendary fashion editor of ''Harper's Bazaar' and 'Vogue', who could produce such 'bon mots' as "Pink is the navy blue of India".
'Autour d'un point' floats around the female body, its point and purpose, with circular shapes and strong silhouettes. The name of the collection is taken from a painting by Frantisek Kupka, a strong stylist, with an individual vision.
To repeat, the female body is the centre of the collection, Metallic tones - silver, gold - are used as highlights, alongside more restrained blacks and whites.
There are bold geometric shapes, with touches of animal and feather. An innovative technique, using an illusion of 3-D printing, softens some of the hard edges; folded sequins give the illusion of studding without the weight.
The original painting, 'Autour d'un point', can be seen in the Peggy Guggenheim museum in Venice.
Ensure your are wearing a piece from the collection when you pay your visit.
