From suffrage to today, what is the relationship with fashion and women's rights? the changes that we see in todays society seem to be moving in the direction of equality and equal opportunity, and fashion has been a major contributor to that shift. Clothing is a form of self expression and women the world over are choosing to use it to tell people how they really feel.
Niki de Saint Phalle was a French-American artist especially known for her series of monumental sculptures paying a tribute to the womanly body and spirit. In her career from the 1960s she became famous when creating her series of life-sized abstract sculptures resembling womanly figures, beaming of power. Her art is sensual and almost naïve but delivers a strong message of feminine strength and simple joy. With lots of colours she persistently painted outside the lines of typical art and created her own sphere of creativity. The beautiful, visionary mind of Niki de Saint Phalle is greatly inspiring to us at Lola Ramona and her art embodies a creative mindset which is a part of our own design DNA.
The avantgarde style in the works of Niki de Saint Phalle was a contrast to typical art and is still a colourful, prolific inspiration to the fashion industry. She challenged colour combinations, patterns and proportions and blurred the lines and limits of modern art. Making her art monumental and thereby “permanent” her style is an eternal statement towards art and fashion, proclaiming that reality is only an illusion and that there are no limits of colours, contrasts, moods and feelings in art. Her creations could be characterised as “outsider art” challenging the individual with sensual, feminine, avant-garde impressions.
Passionately celebrating feminism
Niki de Saint Phalle applauded the womanly body and feminine figures in her vivid sculptures and eloquent paintings. With no limits of proportions and colours she created inspirational, sensual sculptures in life-size and greater format that imply both female virtue and delicacy. She explored the many roles of women in society and protested stereotypes. Her sculptures were often luscious women holding a dance posture or even in acrobatic endeavours, whereby she challenged the typical image of housewives and mothers of her time. We identify ourselves at Lola Ramona with the avant-garde feminism and we enjoy Niki de Sain Phalle’s contrasts and mood expressions exhibited through different colours and patterns.
Niki de Saint Phalle in our DNA
The limitless combinations of colours and patterns in Niki de Saint Phalle’s artistic style mirrors our approach to designing in the fashion industry. Abstract and atypical designs reflect the personality of Lola Ramona in the same way that it did in Niki de Saint Phalle’s art. We feel a strong and special relation to her art and imagination and our style has previously been compared to that of hers with vibrant, joyful and evocative designs. She inspires us with colours and patterns in unique combinations and peculiar proportions.
A recognised interwar fashion designer with sophisticated edge and surrealistic parallels. Elsa Schiaparelli was an innovative designer reflecting on society and interpreting the social environment in which she worked. Between the two world wars she created gorgeous and controversial art pieces of clothes. Her iconic Shoe Hat, Skeleton Dress and Tears Dress all resemble her surrealistic interpretation of fashion, a huge inspiration to us here at Lola Ramona and other fashion houses worldwide.
Reality is only an illusion
Elsa Schiaparelli was a famous Italian fashion designer and is regarded one of the most prominent designers of her time. She turned reality upside down with her impulsive and innovative designs. Her style of impulse and artistic fashion, yet also elegance and sophistication, still today inspires and encourages us to think beyond traditional norms of fashion. Her designs encapsulate the idea that reality is only an illusion. This is a statement with which we identify ourselves and our designs at Lola Ramona and among other reasons why we find Elsa Schiaparelli a true inspiration.
Fashion in free hand
The captivating designs of Elsa Schiaparelli came to life not from a careful sketch, nor from a technical fashion text book but instead from the impulse of the moment and the flow of sudden ideas coming to her. Draping fabric on her own body and letting spontaneous inspiration speak to her, Elsa Schiaparelli created immortal, magnificent fashion designs. Working as a sculptor, Elsa Schiaparelli interpreted the interwar state of society through her fashion. Sophisticated and artistic fashion were cornerstones of her imaginary and powerful style, often bringing innovative designs and fabric structures to life. However, surrealism was never traded in for elegance. Being a true lady, Elsa Schiaparelli created collections of dresses, jackets, accessories, jewellery and much more in a style of delicacy and grandeur.
Expanding the horizon of fashion
Elsa Schiaparelli’s style is surrealistic in the way that her designs deceive the eye and give impressions of additional dimensions or they contradict traditional norms of wearing clothes. Famous designs include a knitwear with a pattern illustrating a tied scarf around the neck and the characteristic Shoe Hat which challenged the way we think of shoes. Furthermore, by being one of the very first designers to develop the wrap dress (an open dress in the style of an apron that comes together in the front) she challenged the way we think of dresses. This was Elsa Schiaparelli’s mission in fashion. She wanted to give her customers more than just sophisticated clothes – she wanted to deliver a story and create reasons to really reflect on fashion. Indeed, she does make us at Lola Ramona reflect, wonder and imagine new terms and conditions in fashion. Elsa Schiaparelli is an immortal designer, forever inspiring and encouraging us.
Designated as ‘The World’s Oldest Teenage’ by herself, Iris Apfel is an inspiration in her own unique way. Throughout her years as a famous, American businesswoman she has become a fashion icon with her always colourful and inimitable style often including vibrant shoes, big bracelets and, of course, her characteristic, big, round glasses. At the age 97 she still inspires women all over the world to find out who they are and always believe in their own style – cause as she says: ‘The key to good style is learning who you are”.
Above all comes fun
Why dress mainstream when you can dress funny? It is no secret, that Iris Apfel always have had and always will have her own sense of humour, but by incorporating this in her fashion choices, she creates awareness that above all comes enjoyment and fun. There is no need to dress traditional, if you are not a traditional person, and with the believe that everyone is special, humour should always come first. Having been included in several design- and arts projects, Iris Apfel have, most certainly, proved her point, as everything she touches is said to bear the traces of her humorous personality. Today, by always using her fun and singular vision of style, she has become an icon within entrepreneurial and innovative fashion.
Colour makes bright
Ever since she started her career, Iris Apfel has been inspired by colours. Her wardrobe is famous for including every possible colour of the world combining her different concepts of living – fun, brightness, and being genuine. Whether it is a pair of colourful, red shoes, a unique, green bag or a patterned, singular pair of glasses, she is making sure that colour is fashionable. A fabulous ‘more is more’ attitude when it comes to wearing bright colours make her shine wherever she goes.
Pretty is not undistinguishable
‘You do not have to be pretty – as long as you have style, you have something much better’. If you ask Iris Apfel, being pretty is not about what other people think, and looking yourself in the mirror and feeling pretty is neither entirely about what clothes, shoes or accessories you wear – it is about feeling good in what you attire and about having your own style. Among other things, this is exactly why we at Lola Ramona find Iris Apfel inspiring. We, too, believe that pretty is not undistinguishable, and by being instantaneously recognisable, Iris Apfel is creating a picture of a world where everyone is allowed to be themselves and still be pretty.
Being one of the most famous and important Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama has a special place in our hearts here at Lola Ramona. In her carrier she has elucidated avant-garde feminism in her own personal, colourful way communicating to women around the world. Yayoi Kusama made dots into art and inspired numerous fellow contemporary artists as well as embedding her style in the fashion industry. Yayoi Kusama is an incredible inspiration to us here at Lola Ramona with her style and beautiful polka-dotted universe.
Painting the industry polka-dotted
Born and raised in Japan Yayoi Kusama studied traditional Japanese art before she set off to New York to play a protagonist role in the development of New York avant-garde through the 1960s. Being fascinated by the American abstract impressionism, she is a well-known pioneer in bringing pop-art, conceptualism, surrealism and of course her vivid dots onto the stage of modern art. Avant-garde feminism and a vibrant spectrum of colours formed her trademark and the polka-dots became her signature. Her take on traditional aesthetics and realms makes Yayoi Kusama’s creations fashionably irresistible and simply enjoyable to look at. Fun is a corner stone in Yayoi Kusama’s personality and ensures never monotonous or lifeless art creations, which is why we, and so many women, love her style.
An endless net of dots
The iconic colourful dots are embedded in her art and personality. Her amazing world of paintings, sculptures, installations etc. all wrapped in dots challenges the way we think of art. Her style is defined by surrealism and conceptuality, encouraging the individual to challenge their mind and to find inspiration in her enlivening dots. Defining avant-garde feminism in her own way, Yayoi Kusama interpreted human and female rights through her environmental art and pop-art style fused together with her polka-dot fascination. By making events of painting assistants full of bright and colourful polka-dots she emphasised female and bodily rights during the late 1960s, being a positive inspiration to many women then and today.
Turning dots into art into fashion
Yayoi Kusama has with her style imprinted the fashion industry and brought dots on the daily agenda of huge fashion houses. She has worked with, among others, Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton besides establishing her own fashion house. Designing evocative and impressionistic collections, she embeds her characteristic colourful polka-dots in her designs. She challenges, redefines and inspires the world of fashion. Yayoi Kusama perceives fashion as art where bright colours, fun and untraditional designs should be the cornerstone of the art. With her beautiful, enjoyable and fun style of art, Yayoi Kusama is our greatest and all-time favourite inspiration here at Lola Ramona.
