One of the exciting trends that started this summer and is here to stay for the autumn is art on clothes. Impressionist, abstract, pop art – as long as it is on the clothes or accessories we wear.
It started on the catwalks of the big designers – Chanel introduced a dress with brushstroke prints with the model holding a sketchbook, Celine – a dress with color splashes, and Louis Vuitton created a special collaboration between street artists and its own scarf collection.
I love art. I am a professed lover of art exhibitions who can stare at paintings for hours and hear the stories behind them. I remember that during my art studies in high school I used to love the classes when we studied about art history and hate the classes when we had to paint and create.
The trousers I’m wearing demonstrate abstract expressionism, an art movement that developed in the 40’s and 50’s of the previous century in the U.S. The idea behind this movement was to move as much as possible away from painting and find alternative ways of self expression. And the truth? This is one of my favorite art movements.
What do you think? How do you feel about wearable art?
