In the creative industry, influence and inspiration can come from an array of places and usually work hand in hand. The process of creating fashion collections usually consists of defining sources for texture, colour and pattern influence, in which most turn to art. Fine art extends into multiple platforms of creativity but can be usually talked about in the sense of great paintings and sculptures. Although some fashion brands choose to borrow thoughts and creations from some art pieces, in recent years full modern interpretations have been made.
Jeff Koons x Louis Vuitton
The French luxury retailer Louis Vuitton is known for combining modern aesthetic with high-end luxury pieces shown through their many collaborations with artists and illustrators. These artists redefine the iconic Louis Vuitton pattern and add their own spin of creativity on it. The latest artistic collaboration is with Jeff Koons, an American artist known for his reproductions of unconventional objects.
This collection personifies the idea of full artistic cooperation between art and fashion, it uses iconic painters work such as Leonardo da Vinci and Vincent van Gogh blended with emblematic LV brown print.
This line of bags and accessories remind us the question of wearability in the luxury sector of fashion. As this collection may or may not be the most versatile style for everyone, we can definitely see the point of fashion not only being influenced by art- but becoming art itself.
