Over the last century artists; many designers have drawn inspiration from artists and art movements to create collections that made art more widely available to the masses.

The relationship between art and fashion has overlapped and intermingled since the first half of the 20th century and it appears to be intensifying. Artists use paintings and artwork as reflections of cultural and economic changes, in the same way designers use clothing styles to do the same.

The bomber jacket is here to stay, it is the must have jacket of the season and the perfect throw-it-on piece. The bomber can rescue any outfit, and adds an instant cool factor. It is not solely an off-duty piece, pair it with a voluminous skirt or dress. The bomber jacket can also be worn with a classic white shirt and jeans or wear it as I have with an all black outfit and a DIY distressed pair of jeans.
