Omnibus Home is delighted to be the exclusive stockist of the stunning Lauren Dickinson Clarke collections. Here we introduce her Moody Muse collection; a truly stunnning addition to our store offering.
Embracing a stylish emoji twist, the series was created to capture the enigmatic personas of famous Muses throughout art history; elusive & provocative women who have inspired and motivated the creative process (with just a pinch of character & wit!
Firstly we have The Poet.....
The Poet pays homage to the romantic yet heart-breaking story of Dara Maar, one of the many muses and lovers of Picasso. Widely recognised as his most famous muse, Dora and Picasso indulged in a turbulent relationship coloured by art, passion, tumult & tension. Picasso eventually left Dora for artist Françoise Gilot, it is sadly said that Dora later died from ‘a broken heart and boredom’.
Next The Provocateur.....
“Fresh, raw, full of passion & sensuality.” These were the words to describe the ravishing Illona Staller, muse to Jeff Koons and the inspiration behind this seductive design.
With a life coloured by scandal, adventure and eroticism, Illona reigns as an irrepressible icon for artists and writers alike. Illona was famously depicted in a pornographic series made by Koons called Made in Heaven.
How about The Performer.......
Full of eccentricities and hiding dark secrets, The Performer is inspired by the enchanting & vibrant Edie Sedgewick, infamous socialite and muse to Andy Warhol. Touted a “Youthquaker” by Vogue, Edie was a bright social butterfly whose candle of fame burned brightly at both ends.
And last but by no means least The Prima Donna....
This alluring design is inspired by the gregarious & captivating Kiki De Montparnasse who was the unifying muse for a generation of Parisian Dadaists and Surrealists.
Despite her intimidating beauty and (frequently unclothed body) it is said that there was something both captivating and unknowable about Kiki, rendering her the perfect & irresistible muse
Lauren hopes that through this collection she has created, others too will be able to express their own attitude and spirit.
