With the change of season came a renewed interest in looks inspired by nature--taking advantage of the colors and flora of the surrounding landscape.
Although I often gravitate toward highly saturated tones, I've been pairing some of my favorite brights with earth tones to suggest the range of colors in nature.
This outfit was inspired by the landscape paintings of Paul Cézanne.
Credited with bridging the gap between Impressionism and Cubism, Cézanne (1839-1906) is arguably the most important artist of the late 20th century.
His work was greatly influenced by Neo-Impressionist Camille Pissarro, whom Cézanne looked to as a teacher and, ultimately, collaborator.
Cézanne's paintings display mastery of form; using flat planes of color, he simultaneously created space and suggested local color.
Both Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso are quoted as saying, "Cézanne is the father of us all."
I took advantage of the lovely spring "weeds" and styled a look with the landscape in mind.
I'm wearing a vintage dress (tailored by me), vintage crinoline, vintage clip-on earrings, Lauren Merkin leather clutch, Nine West belt, and Jeffrey Campbell pumps.
