I've missed Monday morning by a long shot, but I just couldn't let the day completely get away without saying hello and offering a little inspiration.
Through January 3rd of 2016, Kent State University Museum in Kent, Ohio, will be featuring a collection of the work of American designer, Geoffrey Beene. From the museum's website,
"American designer Geoffrey Beene (1927–2004) was respected throughout the American fashion industry for the high technical quality of his work and his innovative, modernist designs. Although very fashionable, Mr. Beene’s collections were never trendy and always original. He took an artist’s approach to turning two-dimensional fabric into a three-dimensional shape for the body and was considered a designer’s designer. Garments from the Museum’s collection will trace his 40-year career."
Mr. Beene sought to eliminate seams and simplify his designs and still make it possible for women to move easily in his clothes. His jackets were structured, simple and still captivating.
He enjoyed playing with minimalist design.
Hope your week is off to a great start!
