Since in my last post I was talking about the Céline SS|| 2012 collection, I also wanted to share with you an image of Lee Miller, photographed by Man Ray in the 30ties [left], that could have been on the inspiration board of Phoebe Philo and her team while working on this beautiful geometric sweater [right]. Lee Miller has been Man Ray's photographic assistant, as well as his lover, model and muse. While she was in Paris, she began her own photographic studio, often taking over Man Ray's fashion assignments to enable him to concentrate on his painting. In fact, many of the photographs taken during this period and credited to Man Ray were actually taken by Miller. She was an active participant in the surrealist movement, with her witty and humorous images.
