Pioneers of the digital process Basso and brooke produced a collection inspired by cubo-futurism in the fall of 2009.
When Russian-born artist Wladimir Baranoff-Rossiné (1888-1944) set out to perfect Cubo-Futurism (which combines the Cubist usage of forms with the Futurist interest in dynamism), he probably never imagined his creations would find themselves gliding down a London catwalk. Then again, maybe he did.
Cubo-Futurism places more emphasis on movement and action then it’s predecessor French Cubism (which gives it a perfect segway into fashion). And, while Basso & Brooke claim that an “exploration of Louis XIV’s baroque and rococo” was the inspiration behind their Fall 2009 collection, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that they lifted their prints and color palettes directly from Wladimir’s timeless masterpieces.
These pieces which look like abstract paintings looked amazing on the catwalk and it is clear from this collection that there is a trend for art as textiles.
