Sunday Swim: Sonia Delaunay

Oh, Sonia. 

That’s Sonia Delaunay.  French textile designer.  Genius.


She paired vibrant, earthy color schemes with bold geometrics and great silhouettes to create some of the most incredible wearables.

This time of year, for obvious reasons, I am drawn to what she did for the world of bathing costumes.  Pure magic.

Nice little write-up and display of how she influences fashion today:   Sonia Delaunay–Textile Maverick
