Happy astronomical Spring! Spring reminds us of abstract expressionism – gestural, free and brimming with emotive energy. The whole world is getting ready to celebrate the blooming of color as winter comes to an end and warmer climates bring bursts of new hues to the earth. Encapsulating a sense of the modern woman who redefines beauty and paints her own destiny, we created looks that add a punch of exuberance to a Spring workwear wardrobe. On view now at the Anderson Collection at Stanford, we highlighted the powerful energy of Spring conveyed in the bold abstract imagery of Mark Rothko and Jackson Pollock.
“I’m interested only in expressing basic human emotions: tragedy, ecstasy, doom, and so on.” ― Mark Rothko
Mark Rothko’s bold Pink, and White Over Red immediately captivated Francesca’s eye. She paired an equally colorful, billowing and romantic Diane Von Furstenberg blouse with an intricately asymmetrical silk H&M skirt. The pop of magenta adds modern intensity, but the placement and texture of the blouse with the skirt has a ladylike dialed up classic aesthetic – perfect for a lunchtime meeting, presentation, or dinner date!
Valentina shimmered next to Sam Francis’ vibrant painting – The Beaubourg. Her look consists of Balmain-inspired Topshop sweater, paired with a belt to highlight the waist. This look strikes the right balance between the professional and the graceful woman out on a mission.
