Quick History Lesson
The name les fauves (‘the wild beasts’) was coined by the critic Louis Vauxcelles when he saw the work of Henri Matisse and André Derain in an exhibition, the Salon D’automne in Paris, in 1905. Fauve artists used pure, brilliant color painted directly from nature, applied straight from the paint tubes to create a sense of an explosion on the canvas.
Fashion, to me, is about more than fitting in the societal box we call trends. Fashion is about creating & cultivating your identity through articles of clothing that empower you with the confidence equivalent to that of a "Wild Beast" in the jungle. Whether you are a minimalist or a maximalist; our general goal at Les Fauve is to continually create pieces that bring out that "Beast" in you just as it did me. The Journey has just begun, welcome, stay a while.
