Designers dip into their painters palettes for spring.
Renoir, van Gough…and Céline? Fashion designers are already artists in their own right, but this spring they got downright literal, pulling inspiration (and actual art) from a variety of genres. From Brassaï’s graffiti work (an inspiration at Céline) to Prada’s painted lady prints (the images commissioned by Miuccia herself ), it seems the art world is undoubtedly painting a pretty picture for spring. Our favorite way to wear the look is with artful geometric prints playing the role of sculptor—clever vertical lines down the middle of an ensemble add length while perfectly placed darker patterns create the enviable illusion of slimmer hips. Let’s just say the term “patron of the arts” has gained a whole new meaning.
