Embracing autumn with this off the shoulder dress and looking forward to week of Art and culture!
Happy Monday gorgeous people and hope you all had a wonderful weekend! It has been so nice and sunny in London which is strange for this time of year so I’m soaking it up before the winter finally settles in. Have a busy week ahead with the upcoming Frieze Art Fair so I’m going to the preview of Chanel’s Mademoiselle Privé exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery today, a Tommy Hilfiger Contemporary Art Party tonight, the launch of Harpers Bazaar Art supplement on Wednesday(out now with the November issue) and Frieze on Saturday. So ye pretty arty this week so make sure to follow my Instagram and snapchat and come back on Friday for my review of all of them.
On the tube home last Friday I picked up a copy of the ES magazine in the Evening Standard and read an interesting article by Clare Coulson about how art and fashion are more intertwined than ever before. Just take Martin Creed’s installation for Victoria Beckham’s party or Riccardo Tisci’s collaboration with Marina Abramovic for the 10th anniversary Givenchy show in New York, art is playing a bigger part in fashion and its exciting. I feel like having an artistic input adds credibility to the designers inspiration and if you have had a chance to go to the Louis Vuitton Series 3 — Past, Present, Future you will further appreciate the creative processes of Nicolas Ghesquière.
Some designers are even going one step further with brands like Prada creating an artistic village Fondazione Prada (dreaming to go!) while “Max Mara has been quietly lending its considerable weight to supporting female artists with the biannual Max Mara Art Prize for Women, which awards a female artist based in the UK a six-month residency in Italy.”
Art has always been part of fashion but never as much as it is now now and even I have noticed it more since I started working in Harpers Bazaar. Fancy adding some art to your wardrobe? Im loving Chiara Ferragni shoes inspired by Picasso and Warhol and Christopher Kanes sweatshirt ( there will be a life drawing sessions this week inspired by this current Lovers Lace collection).
What do you think? How much has Art influenced your style? Let me know your thoughts on this and my look in the comment box below! Do come back on Wednesday for my SS16 trend round up xxx
