Ian & Marcel Evening Kimono in Silk and Rubber London Circa 1985/1990
Circa 1985/1990 England Kaftan or evening kimono in rubber-painted silk by Ian & Marcel, creator of a London avant-garde brand from the end of the 1980s. Kaftan cut with wide slashed sleeves on the arms and shoulders. Totally innovative material in fashion in pale parma silk pongee lined with translucent black silk muslin and hand-painted in black rubber. Random drawing of large concentric spirals with cabochons glued with faceted purple plastic stones, which are also found in tie of the sleeves and shoulders. Printed effect of the upside down strokes in rubber treated in negative. No label but cape collected in a set of fashion by Ian & Marcel, and really typical of their work. Very close piece in the collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London references V & A 1992/894 (see last photo) .Very good condition of color and conservation. Ian met Marcel in Canada in 1976. They created the label in London in the 80s. Their inspiration is clearly medieval but also refers to the pleats of Mariano Fortuny to which Ian had unlimited admiration. Very innovative, their specialty was painting on silk with rubber, the pleats are an obvious reference to their master, Mariano Fortuny. The Victoria and Albert Museum dedicated a cataloged exhibition to them in London in 1993 after their death from AIDS. Dimensions: Front height 106 cm Back height 108 cm Shoulders 35 cm Sleeve 41 cm
