New Cutler & Gross Collection
SPIRIT OF LEMPICKA”
Cutler and Gross Autumn/Winter 2010 Collection is inspired by the 1930’s fashionable painter Tamara de Lempicka. The creative team at Cutler and Gross loves her use of strong colours and the way she‘lit’ her subjects and herself, which is a form of ‘soft’ and ‘synthetic’Cubism that summed up the fashionable and the sensual side of the Art Deco movement in the 1930’s.The strong silhouette of the models in green, red,purple and black create a great contrast against the depressed 30’s industrial buildings of New York which is a recurring theme through out our campaign.
The new collection reflects the mood and style of the period;Precise and sensual in feel and texture. Here, mixing metal with acetate,curving and streamlining to recreate the utmost luxurious glasses with the Art Deco essence and in the true spirit of Lempicka.Key colors for women; gold with fire orange, bakelite blue and ruby red set the tone..For men; ocean blue with silver metal, Deco brown laminated with crème acetate and of course the classic and favorite blacks are here to stay.
