Inspired By: Helen Frankenthaler

Helen Frankenthaler, Untitled

The fluid, super-saturated colors of Abstract Expressionist painter Helen Frankenthaler are a major reference for us as we try to look past the coming winter to what we want to wear from the spring collections. The way that Frankenthaler integrates colors and yet keeps them separate at the same time is impactful and gorgeous.  We love the idea of working a singular hue to full effect or artfully combining a couple of colors in a chic mashup.
