Nicole Farhi 2010 Spring/Summer Collection
Farhi took her inspiration from the German Expressionist painter Emile Nolde, creating a collection that was indeed painterly, splashing and daubing colors including mauve, mustard, petrol and dusky pink on to shirt dresses, shifts and wide-legged trousers. Farhi also painted blue stripes- like brush strokes- across fluttery organza blouses. There was sculpture and asymmetry too seen in hemlines and dramatic draping around the neck and hips.
