THE PRIMA DONNA

This alluring design is inspired by the gregarious & captivating Kiki De Montparnasse who was the unifying muse for a generation of Parisian Dadaists and Surrealists.

Despite her intimidating beauty, outlandish demands and (frequently unclothed body) it is said that there was something both captivating and unknowable about Kiki, rendering her the perfect & irresistible muse.

THE PROVOCATEUR

 

“Fresh, raw, full of passion & sensuality.” These were the words to describe the ravishing Illona Staller, muse to Jeff Koons and the inspiration behind this seductive design.

 

With a life coloured by scandal, adventure and eroticism, Illona reigns as an irrepressible icon for artists and writers alike. Illona was famously depicted in a pornographic series made by Koons called Made in Heaven.

THE POET

The Poet pays homage to the romantic yet heart-breaking story of Dara Maar, one of the many muses and lovers of Picasso. Widely recognised as his most famous muse, Dora and Picasso indulged in a turbulent relationship coloured by art, passion, tumult & tension. Picasso eventually left Dora for artist Françoise Gilot, it is sadly said that Dora later died from ‘a broken heart and boredom’.

The Poet design is a part of the Moody Muse Collection by LDC. Embracing a stylish emoji twist, the series was created to capture the enigmatic personas of famous Muses throughout art & Pop culture history; elusive & provocative women who have inspired and motivated the creative process.
