Design House Caroline Reboux French

Not on view

Giant paratriangles of color form a cape with deliberate historical references that date back to the Old Testament. Reboux's color is purposely constrained and she achieved the crucial shape of the triangle for the cape while on the body. Laid flat, the cape is of a slightly irregular and ungainly shape, but Reboux has us direct our reading to the configuration on the body and not on the plane.
