Taeuber-Arp and Marni

The colour blocking in Swiss artist Sophie Taeuber-Arp’s costume reminds me of Consuelo Castiglioni’s designs for Marni.

Castiglioni grew up on the Swiss-Italian border and sometimes you get that Edelweiss feeling.

Like a whiff of Maria’s curtain creations in Sound of Music.

And yellow is so cheerful.
