Eileen Agar inspires new fashion line
Leading fashion designer Erdem Moralioglu revealed that Eileen Agar was his muse for pre-fall 2022.
Moralioglu visited Agar's retrospective at the Whitechapel Gallery in London, and attributed a quote by the artist to his new collection: “I have spent my whole life in revolt against convention, trying to bring color and light and a sense of the mysterious to daily existence”.
According to a recent review in Harper's Bazaar, Agar "worked within the juxtaposition of controlled English politeness and sexual abandon - which is where this collection comes in".
And for The Fashionography, "Agar’s capacity to elevate everyday life into something more extraordinary is felt throughout the collection".
Vogue Runway's recent Instagram post explained the story in more detail, and received over 8,000 likes.
