Weekend Eye Candy - Sonia Delaunay, 1925

Artist Sonia Delaunay also produced fashion and textiles.  This coat c. 1925 is of brown wool that has has been completely covered in embroidery of wool yarn and silk threads.  The Cooper Hewitt Museum in New York is currently exhibiting "Color Moves: Art and Fashion by Sonia Delaunay" through June 5, 2011.  I'll be visiting the exhibit later this month and will have a full report for you.
