“This Elusive Muse,” is a collage of her influences from the past 50 years, and takes its name from the film about George Balanchine’s ballerina muse Suzanne Farrell. This inspiration represents the thematic cross-section of Black’s talents—an unconditional passion for ballet that can be seen in the line’s open-back tops and scooped necklines. Meanwhile, her painterly sensibilities come through in a shadowy color—palette ranging from black to grey and chrome—that is interrupted by saturated greenish blue and ’40s peacock colors. [JC Report]
