The Infinite Variety collection, created in collaboration with Tim Hartley, draws inspiration from some of the great artists to create a series of iconic images in which colour is the undisputed protagonist.
The first reference the latest Davines collection gets inspiration from is the use of colour that made Andy Warhol so famous. Who can’t remember that famous picture of Marylin Monroe reproduced in umpteen colour combinations? The second inspiration is from the Bauhaus with its shape and colour symbolism. Tim Hartley refers to this concept when he says: “I wanted the cut to be a neutral yet characterising canvas for subsequent technical work, showing the fusion between geometry and the power of colour”. His muse is Louise Brooks who made the bob famous in the 20s, a versatile, feminine and always modern cut; just like Charlotte Perriand, immortalised with a marvellous bob on an LC4 chaise longue by Le Corbusier.
Infinite Variety proposes a number of pictures of the model where colour is the main protagonist: from the first in black and white with her natural hair colour, to the next in a romantic pastel blonde.
Then punk pink turns the model into a Young Rebel while pure red gives us her a “film star” version and elegant brown makes her a Femme Fatale.
The last step in this metamorphosis is luminous black, the Urban chic Gothic style’s extreme glamour weapon.
