Discover Bold, Beautiful and Damned with Pic de Nore


Pic de Nore introduices Tony Viramontes

Today we open with the presentation of the book Bold, Beautiful and Damned a series of articles about the artist Tony Viramontes, one of the illustrations reproduced on one of the Pic de Nore sweaters of our new summer collection 2015.

When Viramontes made his debut in the late 1970′s, his hard and direct style was a marked contrast to the prevailing soft pastel school of fashion illustration.


Tony Viramontes an immediate success

When Tony Viramontes‘ work appeared in the late 1970s, his hard and direct style of drawing was a marked contrast to the prevailing soft-pastel school of fashion illustration. He scored immediate success, rapidly acquiring the kind of prestigious editorial commissions normally given to photographers, from LeiPer Lui in Italy,Vogue in the USA, The Face in Britain, and Le Monde and Le Figaro in France.

This beautiful hardback book brings together an extensive collection of his work, featuring striking images of smouldering and smoky-eyed men and women who vibrate with New Wave energy. Viramontes worked with some of the most celebrated names in fashion including Yves Saint Laurent, Valentino, Chanel, Claude Montana and Christian Dior.

His images, from the portraits of Paloma Picasso and Isabella Rossellini to the album covers he conceived for Arcadia and Janet Jackson, perfectly capture the mood of the 1980s club and fashion scene.


We give you an appointment next week for a portrait of the life and work of Tony Viramontes. In the meantime feel free to discover the pull Pic de Nore taking one of the drawings of the artist.
