Klimt Inspire and the Styling Tips behind the Look of Klimt’s Muses

December 6, 2012 § 2 Comments


Unlike the overly coiffed, maintained and somewhat harsh looks that many women wear today, we can all agree that the best kind of beauty is the raw, untempered and untamable spirit we find gorgeous in Angelina Jolie, Brigette Bardot and Audrey Hepburn. It is the type of beauty that shines from behind one’s eyes as they light up in excitement. It is not a carefully calculated study of contemporary beauty trends and standards, but instead a little messy and dishelved, but the warmth of beautiful woman’s(inside and out) spirit along with her attitude to live a life of passion, her interactions between strangers and those she knows and loves is what makes a woman beautiful and a stunning sight to behold-like art in movement.

All of Klimt’s muses seem to have this je ne sa quois. He is able to capture women in all the glorious moments playfully, confidently, softly, sensually and introspectively through their simple gestures of gracefulness, in their quiet noble and nurturing solitude and introspection, to their powerfully sexy and fearless stands remaining undaunted by the breadth of true power and beauty they so easily bestow. A true mark of the Empress that exists in every woman, Klimt doesn’t withhold the wide range of beauty to be seen, moments of child-like playfulness to the comfort of a motherly embrace are just as profound to re-witness every time as the moments of strong and steadfast serenity to the glory of peace and poise. All of these moments, portray the range of life, along with the sheer erotic ecstasy of sensuality, these beautiful moments of Klimt’s muses are made complete with full vulnerability when soul’s touch and bodies meld.

There is no doubt that Klimt has managed to successfully and beautifully capture the muse inside all women. Many other artists have been inspired and been able to capture Klimt in not only their artistic reanderings (as I have previously talked about in my last blog post) but also in fashion both runway and indie designers, product design, photoshoots, hair, make-up, jewelry, home decor and interior design. The poses, mannerisms, gestures, body language, hair, make-up and style are all very important elements to being this goddess/sensual lover divine. As a result, the details and dress and elements of sensual retreat.

Hybrid Vigor with Alexander McQueen and the Rise and Fall of Klimt Stardust

Fashion Designer Alexander McQueen Resort 2013 inspiration came from the brushstrokes, patterns, color palette(albeit a pared down in color) of Klimt’s painting style. McQueen remixed prints into fabrics that seriously mixed David Bowie’s oversexed adrogeneous look in styling and attitude for a crisper and structured look. I love that two very different and both very known for their erotic behvior artist and musician can clearly be seen in this collection and McQueen pulls this hybrid vigor off perfectly. Instead of some of the light, airy romantic feel of Klimt he achieve’s the throwback by pulling in common patterns, color palettes but goes for an equally empowered and confident look in shillouette very opposite of Klimt’s drapey fabrics and romantic tendencies.

Klimt is the original mix master, never too matchy, matchy but he’s always kept a continued theme of colors and balance consistent, so even what would seem like a clash of patterns on fabrics becomes an exciting mix of textured beauty that feels cohesive to the eye.

Detail rich textures in materials like dichotic glass, mosiac tiles and other mediums can be mixed to achieve the perfect Klimt-esque feeling which always borders between the luxury of powerful emotions and the excitement of the material.

    I very much enjoy reading this and your earlier works. They are filled with a sense of enthusiastic wonder that is both sapient and salient. The use of language is evolving to a solid and muscular prose that delights the reader as much as the writer I’m sure!
