It goes without saying – fashion and art has long been intertwined, and there are many instances of art-meets-fashion collaborations in the industry:
In 2012, famed footwear designer, Jimmy Choo, collaborated with contemporary artist, Rob Pruitt, to create a capsule collection.
This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress. To celebrate this milestone, the designer created a special edition “pop-wrap” collection inspired by Andy Warhol’s 1964 flower series.
The most prolific (and my personal favorite) art-meets-fashion moment is the series of color-blocked shift dresses created by Yves Saint Laurent in 1965, inspired by artist Piet Mondrian. Even to this day, the iconic work by Dutch artist Piet Mondrian continue to serve as inspiration to designers (in both fashion and interior design).
