Barbara Hepworth has inspired countless creatives down the decades, the latest of which is fashion designer Peter Jensen. His new spring/summer womenswear collection directly referenced the “organic, feminine shapes of her work” and for its British launch last week, it was shown off amidst her sculptures at the the wonderful Hepworth Wakefield Gallery.
Holes in the footwear and the hats (created in conjunction with milliners Bernstock Spiers) played off the artist’s iconic sculptures, her famous ovoid forms become scoop-necked knitwear, images of her St Ives garden were used in textile prints and Jensen even presented twists on her personal style of cardigans and head-scarves.
Barbara Hepworth is Peter’s latest muse (previously he has been inspired by Cindy Sherman and Sissy Spacek among others) but the chance to exhibit his new collection in such an apt location really brings this unusual creative combination to life.
