The Spring-Summer 2020 Fête Impériale Collection, named Les Nues, wasdesigned around two prints created by Laura especially for the occasion. Thefirst, which is proposed in two variants, is a drawing of naked intertwined bodies.A gray and white version, drawn in pencil then blurred with an eraser, keepsthe original proportions of the bodies. A second version, Les Géants, is a 400%enlargement of the initial version which gives a pixelated effect. The inside of thebodies have been colored in blue.Through the obvious tribute to Matisse and her series of nude dancers, LauraGauthier Petit also desires to highlight the nude works of the 50s and have fun,as they were considered shocking during this period.The other woman from the Collection, the one on the second drawing, wascreated with the illustrator Marianne Ratier.
