Erica M. was inspired by Guy Bourdin’s photography for her Fall/Winter Lingerie Collection. Guy Bourdin (2 December 1928, Paris – 29 March 1991, Paris), was a French artist and fashion photographer known for his provocative images. Bourdin’s photographs are often richly sensual but also rely heavily on provocation and ability to shock. Additionally integrating erotic, surreal, sinister components, Bourdin configured a whole new visual vocabulary with which to associate the goods of haute-couture.
Each piece infuses his work with a tinge of 70’s flare creating intricately knitted undergarments reminiscent of the glamorous decade.
