If Sonia Delaunay were still alive, she'd be wearing Hermes' Fall 2011 Collection.
Sonia Delaunay was an artist who was most widely recognized as one of the co-founders of the Orphism art movement (the use of bold color and geometric pattern within art). Besides painting she also worked in stage and textile design and was the first living woman to have a retrospecitve exhibition at the Louvre in 1964. Many of the Fall 2011 collections have taken a page out of Sonia Delaunay's book using bold colors, and geometric patterns. This look from Hermes looks right up Miss Delaunay's alley. Thanks to to Seesaw for the inspiration. If you have any recommendations for a "Now and Then Girl" leave a comment and if you'd like to see the rest of the "Now and Then Gang" go here.
