Color, Pattern + Architecture Inspires Boo Pala’s AW/14 Collection

image

To describe Boo Pala’s AW/14 inspirations as simply color, pattern + architecture, is just scratching the surface.  With patterns inspired by James Rosenquist‘s epic ‘F-111’ painting (below), a lot of the looks played with color, texture + structure in interesting ways. image

In case you didn’t know, ‘F-111’ was painted in ‘64, during the middle of the Vietnam War.  The F-111 military plane was shown in fragments, comprised of conflicting consumerism, advertising + the Vietnam war.  That being said,  Boo aptly named this collection ‘The Matadors of Abstraction’, as it dealt with not only highlighting the ‘F-111’ painting, the artist’s history + Spanish historical + modern architecture of Enric Miralles (below), in relation to the current socioeconomic climate in Spain.

Notice how perfectly all these influences transform into wearable art.
