Unexpected Inspiration – Loie Fuller Meets Our Twilight Room

We have had some great feedback on our twilight room – “inspiring,” “energetic,” and “unique” are just some of the descriptors used by admirers. One of the key features of this space is the stunning artwork - two pieces which also served as great inspirations for the space. Each have distinct shapes and forms, which stand almost frozen, drawing the viewer in to catch a glimpse of each intricate detail before it erupts in motion once more.

The artwork on the top right entitled “Pink Elena” features model Elena Sudakova swathed in billowing blush fabric.

The artwork on the top left entitled “Widows of Culloden Organza Dress” elegantly displays the genius of Alexander McQueen with an ivory silk organza dress. The dress, originally worn by Kate Moss wrapped her in rippling fluid texture as she delighted onlookers in an unexpected hologram in McQueen’s Autumn/Winter 2006 fall fashion show.

Both pieces have distinct shapes and forms, which stand almost frozen, drawing the viewer in to catch a glimpse of each intricate detail before it erupts in motion once more. This got us thinking…if these pieces were our inspirations – what inspirations might Sundsbø have had?

Lastly, let us present Loie Fuller (the bottom image). This young woman from a suburb of Chicago burst onto the Paris art nouveau scene with a truly unforgettable and mesmerizing display of dance, theatre and color. Her revolutionary approach is an obvious inspiration to both Sundsbø and McQueen…and we’re not surprised. Her Serpentine dance amongst others is a true delight to watch and we’re pretty sure that her inspirations won’t stop here.

Enjoy the live version of Loie Fuller’s Serprentine Dance below.
