The Fendi Matisse dress

In the early 40s, Matisse finds himself handicapped and  almost unable to paint. Having lost the capability of moving but not his creativity, he will begin to rework on a technique he had previously experienced. The principle? He cuts sheets of colored paper and assembles them to create a composition. In this period of his life emerged the famous Nu Bleu or Mimosa.

It seems that Karl had met Henri Matisse in thought while preparing his summer collection 2015. This dress looks like the work of the painter but Fendi’s version of it. Leather cutouts assembly, echoes the work of the master even regarding the color palette: the klein blue, sky blue, black, white, taupe. It could possibly interfere with a retrospective of the artist as that of last year’s in the modern Tate of London dedicated to these famous works of cuts and recommended by Karl himself.

Halfway between Nu Bleu and La Gerbe, forget the glamorous, the tribute is obvious. Joined by a flood fringe and a very short cut, the result certainly would have delighted Matisse himself.
