Happy Friday, all!
The print of this sweater reminds me of Matisse's late work, the cutouts. As I mentioned before, when the artist was bedridden, he relied on cutting shapes out of colored paper and pasting them down to express his artistic vision.
I've always found the cutouts to be extremely powerful for their simplicity and visual dynamics.
Here is an installation shot I captured on a recent visit to the National Gallery:
Isn't it hard to believe that Matisse created masterpieces like this on his death bed?
I decided to pair my Matisse sweater with this necklace which was a recent acquisition. I have a weakness for neon in my wardrobe (case in point), and I think it complements the sweater quite well! To complete the look, I added my favorite jeans and leather mules.
I'm wearing a Twinkle by Wenlan sweater, PRPS jeans, necklace from H&M, and Marni shoes.
Have a great weekend!
