The Fauvist

Nine paintings, nine pieces of couture, nine quotes on love. The Studio S Autumn Winter 2018 couture collection is titled ‘The Fauvist’ and is inspired by Fauvism, an early 20th century art movement that emphasised vivid expressionistic painting and the use of strong colour over realistic representation. Kees van Dongen, was one of the leading Fauves. Nine of his paintings inspire this collection, worn by women who, in the spirit of Les Fauves, fearlessly recite their favourite quote on love. This can be seen perhaps as an act of modern day Fauvism. For what can be more brave than sharing your deepest thoughts on love with the world?
