Modus Vivendi is known for bold styles with tons of color and unique designs. The swimwear line was so successful that they decided to extend the Modus Vivendi Mondrian Line to include underwear styles and sportswear for the FW 2015 season.
Each style in the Modus Vivendi Mondrian Line collection is inspired by abstract paintings of Dutch artist Piet Mondrian. He used bold color blocking in geometric shapes, mostly rectangles, to create a bold visual impact and a confident, vibrant style. Mondrian stuck to a color palette of primary shades of reds, yellows and blues mixed with absolute black and white. His style was very unique and interesting to view.
The Modus Vivendi Mondrian Line features a tank top, brief, and a boxer all with color blocking on the front and a solid white or black on the back. Phillip Sharp makes modeling look easy in each image. His sleeked back hair and sharp eyes draw in the attention of the viewer. While the bold use of color causes the viewer to linger over each photo, basking in it’s own unique composition. Each image has a unique background. The colorful rectangles and squares are moved around in each image, giving the viewer a new unique perspective with each new image. The colorful shapes are layered to give each image more texture and depth. The layering technique gives the appearance that the solid black background seems so much further from the camera than the shapes do.
Photographer Gavin Harrison captures Phillip in a constant state of sexy in each image. Gavin uses a Piet Mondrian-inspired rectangular geometric color blocking background to bring out the color in each style more thoroughly. Philip also uses blocks of color in some photos to pose against to capture the attention of the viewer more readily.
