Art + Fashion


Cooperation between art and fashion has already been largely proved. Art institutions around the world accept fashion as an artistic expression. Proof of that in the space dedicated to fashion at the Metropolitan Museum in New York. Some artists have worked directly with the Maisons: Takashi Murakami imprinted his little drawings in Louis Vuitton's bags, Yayoi Kusama did the same with her infinite dots for a Marc Jacobs' collection and Damian Hirst stamped skulls on scarves and clutches for Alexander McQueen
On other occasions it's the disgners who take masterpieces, specially classic ones, to include them in their collections. Sometimes the public is challenged to recognise the influence of a certain artist in the pieces on the runway. 
Either way, fashion-makers usually seek inspiration in artworks of all time. In this post we'll see pieces done with images by Paul Klee, Alexander Calder and Pérez Celis, among others.
Let's see some examples...
