Trudy Benson x Maria Brito
“Feminine Irreverence” was created by Maria in collaboration with three New York-based women artists who work with vibrant colors and whose themes and explorations range from pop culture to daily life to theatrical narratives: Katherine Bernhardt, Natalie Frank and Trudy Benson. These women have many things in common: their passion for color and for painting as a preferred medium, the shared city that they call home and the uncontrollable need to express themselves through art. Maria has known these women personally and professionally for many years and has closely examined their archives and current shows looking for the perfect pieces for this collection. She is always striving for a reproduction that is authentic to the artists’ works while selecting every detail, designing repeats and patterns, and finding special hues and pigments – ultimately creating accessories that are unique and special, that can be worn up or down, and are true pieces of art.
