PRLog - Dec. 7, 2011 - QUEENS, N.Y. -- The inspiration for the Collection comes from the work of painter Mark Rothko, who used color to communicate emotion and passion. The formal shapes in his work are blocks of color — mesmerizing in their depth and complexity… and sensuous in their rounded, wispy edges… and powerful in their delicate balance with each other.
Melba Christine is more than a label..
In exacting detail, he created almost dreamlike works of art, layering colors as if they were heartfelt feelings blended together right on the canvas. It’s no wonder he once wrote that “art to me is an anecdote of the spirit.”
It is this ability of color and shape to spark passion and the human imagination, to which we offer an homage with the 2011 Collection: Cascade of Colors.
Rothko once wrote that “shapes have no direct association with any particular visible experience,”
Just like we do in our lives everyday.
All of us are on an unknown adventure, pursuing it everyday we step out into that great “unknown space” we call the world. With the power of our spirit, we each create our own space — one with depth and balance and even luminosity. And we invite others into that space, to experience it in a way that Rothko described as “not grandiose... [but] intimate and human.”
Rothko believed that art must be experienced. So open your heart to the sublime richness of your own spirit. Blend colors and shapes to create your own unique presence, let your “performers”
What's your manifesto?
There is no single "Melba Christine woman."
Today’s agenda might be fun. Tomorrow’s might be running the show at work. She may be a strong protector one minute, and a funny-girl the next. She embraces life and love with abounding passion. She conquers adversity and rises above life’s challenges, all while wearing her heart on her sleeve. So many things, so many lives, so many women.
One look. One fit. One choice, could never be enough. She is classic, bold, tough, feminine... and more. Sometimes one at a time, sometimes all at once.
She chooses her look to make a statement. To make an impact. To tell the world who she is and what she’s about, today, right here and right now. So... What are you about? What’s your mood, what’s your challenge, what’s your inspiration?
Declare yourself. What’s your manifesto?
