n°213/ Allure

March 2016

Regularly assigned by prestigious fashion magazines such as Harpers or M Magazine, French artist Aurore de La Morinerie is renowned for her Japanese print-like elegant drawings. She gets her inspiration from long stays in museums where she draws ladies and gowns such as the famous Proustian Countess Greffulhe (to be watched at the Paris Galliera Museum till March 20), pointing out what the fashion world loves to call allure. In a semi-shade atmosphere La Morinerie conveys so well, clothes seem to breath with the uncanny presence of watercolor ghosts or to move slowly like jellyfish in deep down oceans.
