Appliqué by AlphaStyle - A Contemporary Expression Of Art And Fashion
How Do You Find Direction In Uncertain Times
For us, the answer lies in confidence. The elusive art of finding your footing in uncertain times and uncomfortable conditions. As we move into the winter months of 2021, in a climate filled with optimism for the future, we introduce the Appliqué Capsule Collection.
A collection we hope inspires the self confidence needed to tackle the challenges that lie ahead for all those bold enough to pursue their dreams. The exhibition to follow digs deep into the world of contemporary art and brings to life images of supreme confidence in representation of the Appliqué collection. Largely inspired by the works of Kehinde Wiley and Amy Sherald, world renowned artist chosen to paint the official portraits of former president and first lady Barack and Michelle Obama.
The subject of a portrait painted by Amy Sherald in 2016, Pythagore appears once again confidently wearing the Appliqué collection and holding the unavoidable gaze Amy’s portraits are known for.
