When Art Meets Fashion: Dior & Rene Gruau

Fashion, in its purest form, is wearable art

 
The collaboration between art and fashion is not a new phenomenon. 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. This connection is sometimes missed but the connection between art and fashion is something not to be ignored. Fashion, as Poiret considered it, is a form of artistic expression and over time, artists and art movements have proved to be a prevalent source of inspiration for designers. 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. Furthermore, artists and art movements as a source of inspiration has been a constant feature in the fashion industry, dating back to Elsa Schiaparelli and her collaboration with Salvador Dali, the Piet Mondrian inspired YSL collection and even brands such as Prada using street art as a source of inspiration for their SS14 collection.

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.
