這次Kelly要介紹能讓時間暫停的時尚插畫家Aurore de La Morinerie
Aurore de La Morinerie於1962年生於法國聖洛
畢業於Arts Appliqués Duperré
從書法研習，de La Morinerie學習到對下筆力道、速度與集中度的控制
第一次看到De La Morinerie的作品是在英國版Bazaar編輯通訊旁的插圖
再來是今年五月英國Vogue報導De La Morinerie替John Galliano時裝畫的一系列作品
De La Morinerie的顧客還包括Le Monde（法國世界報）, Chanel, Hermes, Gucci與Yves Saint Laurent等
結合西方水彩與東方水墨精神，De La Morinerie的作品與一般插畫家截然不同她使用的材質多半為水彩或墨汁
從插畫中衣服剪裁，不難看出顧客是誰，這是2013年De La Morinerie為Chanel繪製插畫，畫中沒畫出模特兒五官，但彷彿連表情都能感受到
Not difficult to tell the client of this work from cut of clothes. This was the illustration de La Morinerie did for Chanel in 2013. The model had no facial features, but audience could actually "feel" her facial expression.
You can feel the body moving even it is on a static paper.
很喜歡de La Morinerie繪製的傢具系列，彷彿柳宗理設計的傢具，簡單而不簡單，只有幾個線條的畫面卻能讓人玩味許久（de La Morinerie確實曾幫柳宗理的〈蝴蝶椅〉繪製過版畫）
Really really like the series of furniture de La Morinerie paints, and it is like furniture designed by Sori Yanagi, just simple and elegant, work you want to collect and appreciate for life time. (In fact de La Morinerie did paint the signature work of Sori Yanagi, Le Tabouret Butterfly.)
Illustration for Gucci perfume, composed only by a few brushes, different concentration of colouring makes the bottle so vivid as if you could take it out from paper.
我們下次見 : )
In this article, I would like to introduce my favorite fashion illustrator, Aurore de La Morinerie
No matter how advanced digital photography is, illustrators are never replaced.
Compared with images captured in seconds by a camera, unique curves and colours in illustrations are more intriguing.
“Fashion Illustration” is one stream of illustration, and you can see them on fashion magazines and every publicity material.
Good illustration can make text more compelling and products more fascinating.
Have you ever seen any art work that makes you feel time is temporarily stopped because the work is too beautiful and profound?
Well, I would call that state of mind “Zen”, and the artist who can make time stop is Aurore de La Morinerie.
De La Morinerie was born 1962 in Saint-Lo, France.
After she graduated from Arts Appliqués Duperré, she was a fashion designer before she became a fashion artist.
De La Morinerie once spent 2 years studying Chinese calligraphy.
The study had a profound impact on her style because she learnt how to control strength, speed and concentration of her brushes.
The first time I saw de La Morinerie’s work was on the editorial page of UK Bazaar.
This May the UK Vogue reported a series of sketches by Aurore de La Morinerie for John Galliano’s couture collection (The collection was Galliano’s first outing for Maison Margiela).
De La Morinerie’s clients also include Le Monde, Chanel, Hermes, Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent etc.
Using both techniques of western watercolour and oriental ink wash, de La Morinerie’s works are very different from other illustrators’.
Instead of giving really clear outlines of objects, she likes to shape objects with solid colours and leave area of void in her paintings.
That is what I would describe as “Zen”.
Very often there are no facial features in her work, but you can still see emotion expressions of models she paints.
Figures in her paintings are always very elegant and confident, just like photographers can always capture the best moments.
Here I am going to introduce my favorite works of de La Morinerie.
