Mondrian inspired Chanel purse

I suppose I am not the only one, who noticed the new Chanel purse inspired by Piet Mondrian, an artist born in the 19th century in the Netherlands. By 1911 he had begun to work in a Cubist mode after seeing original Cubist works by Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso. Later on he decided to move to Paris and there he began to develop an independent abstract style known as an Mondrian ”signature” (for example composition with Yellow, Blue, and Red)  today.

I find the bag gorgeous, different, fun and can imagine easily to add this one to my Chanel family.

  1. Hmm, ich zweifle ja stark an, dass diese Chanel Tasche von Mondrian inspiriert wurde… er arbeite mit viel mehr weiß. Die Tasche erinnert mich zu stark an einen Harlekin und wer will schon als Clown herumlaufen???

    Ich finde Deine blaue selbstgenähte Hose übrigens sensationell! Wirklich eine gelungene Arbeit. Witzigerweise hatte ich genau solch einen Pelzbesatz bei einer Jacke vor, diesen Winter kam ich allerings noch nicht dazu.

    Liebe Grüße,
