Art and fashion — two of my absolute favorite things of all time (if you could figure out how to throw food in there, I would be in heaven). A popular trend on high fashion runways is taking famous pieces of art and transferring the prints into pieces of clothing.
Rodarte's Spring 2012 Collection was full of pieces inspired by Van Gogh paintings, including "Starry Night" and "Sunflowers."
The Prada Spring 2013 Collection showcased prints from Andy Warhol's "Flowers."
Diane von Furstenberg was also inspired by Andy Warhol's "Flowers." She mixed the famous paintings with her famous wrap dress.
Bosch's "Garden of Earthly Delights" was the inspiration for pieces from the Carven Fall 2012 Collection.
Masterpieces from Gustav Klimt served as inspiration for a collection designed by L'Wren Scott.
Tom Ford Fall/Winter 2013 Collection featured some strong art undertones from pop art and modern art pieces.
A dress from Yves St. Laurant's 2002 collection featured an identical print to Piet Mondrain's artwork.
It's no secret that the art and fashion world are intertwined.
I can hear my art history teacher screaming about this (and whipping out her wallet!)
The Klimt prints are the coolest! I feel like the other designs got really literal and drew influence from very specific works (which is fine), but L'Wren Scott was able to more generally capture the Klimt aesthetic and create prints from that, which I think it just a liiiittle bit cooler.
@caricakes haha of course! if I could afford any of these, I probably would have already bought the van gogh ones :)
@danidee That's very true! I'm a sucker for Van Gogh so those dresses are my favorite, but you are totally right that it is better to capture the feel of the artist rather than just making a copy of it!
