INSPIRATION F.C. Gundlach 1966... Gareth Pugh SS||2017

The German photographer F.C. Gundlach is regarded as the most important fashion photographer of West Germany’s early post-war period. His pictures are often reduced to the essentials, clear in structure and prioritising the precision of communication. His images meld emotional and rational elements in a unique visual language.That’s maybe why his iconic image from 1966 of model Brigitte Bauer wearing op art swimwear by designer Sinz Vouliagmeni [left] seems like an inspiration picture for the visually extremely structured SS||2017 collection of Gareth Pugh [right].
