In 1994, one of the most significant and profound discoveries was made in the Ardèche region of France. Over 40,000 years old, the Chauvet cave served as a Paleolithic haven for ritual practices with stylistic paintings that depict various scenic images of animals of the Aurignacian period. Shrouded within the darkness of the limestone walls, the ancient art could only be painted and revealed through the flames from the painter’s torch. The ripple of the fires lent movement to the surreptitious advance of crouching lions prior to the hunt and the clashing speed of wooly rhinos fighting for territory. These paintings and the culture behind them are heavily imbued in the Rochambeau Fall/Winter 2013 collection, the reinterpretation of the paintings can be seen on this season’s silhouettes in embroideries and prints.
