Signed René Gruau, this poster for "L'officiel (de la Haute-Couture et de la mode parisienne)" unusually uses the image from the magazine's cover.
To celebrate Parisian fashion, René Gruau focuses all his attention on Yves Saint-Laurent's famous black suit, immediately recognisable, the woman being only sketched in a few lines.
Refinement, femininity, dynamism and sensuality are combined in this stylised image, with a reduced palette of colours, as sober as it is effective.
René Gruau, whose real name is Renato Zavagli-Ricciardelli delle Caminate, was an Franco-Italian illustrator, poster designer and painter. His perfect mastery of the line aims to glorify the feminine figure. His work in the world of fashion and advertising has visually inspired several generations.
