The inspiration came in 1967 from the piece “Archipel”, composed by Boucourechliev, which Christoph von Weyhe was listening to while painting in his studio. This music, with its unpredictable rhythm, thus heralds the appearance of archipelagos at random on the canvas. The drawing was later acquired by the Pompidou Foundation, where it still occupies a prominent place. Archipel, today inspires a collection of light and graphic prints. As if the drawing was delicately laid on muslin and cotton veils.
Crafted in airy cotton veil or draped silk chiffon, the dresses flare delicately, highlighted by a large shawl collar with hood or scalloped second-skin tops. Belts elegantly cinch the waist and indented backs sensually reveal the skin.
