Recently, I’ve visited again the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, one of the most important museums of modern art. There are many amazing things going on there all the time. You can hear the Tibetan monks chants as you take the escalator or dive into a light installation among many other forms of contemporary art. My favorite place is the 5th floor, where you can admire the “classic” masterpieces of art dated from 1905 to 1945, from Matisse, Picasso,Delaunay, Malevič, Miro… I also love the contemporary art, but my biggest admiration goes to charismatic painters who influenced their upcoming time, as big visionaries. One of them is for sure Henri Matisse, which I really find inspiring, especially with his own use and perception of color. I can sense parallels in some upcoming trends from fall 2011 collections and his work: layers of bright colors, simple constructions and forms, a sophisticated simplicity,… There were such influences also in the make-up where models looked like faces from modern painter’s canvas. Here are a few inspirations for you to take note, admire and find some of your own tips to build your fall new look!
