FASHION AND ARTS - YSL AND OLYMPIA


The advertising image is inspired by the painting "Olympia" by Manet. In the painting the young, nude and beautiful olimpia is the icon of a courtesan.

In the picture there instead a man, dressed and looking directly to the observer.


He is the a symbol of fashion that is admired by the woman with flowers, who is a symbol of art that is paying homage to the fashion.

The faded red lily is a symbol for pride, royalty and nobility.

The bed is a symbol for passion and sensuality.


The advertising picture sends a message: Fashion is admired by Arts for its pride, beauty and nobility.
