Style It: Fashionable Art

We've said it before and we'll say it again: Wear a work of art.

Here are some pieces from our collection that you should get your hands on. 

Louis Vuitton x Takashi Murakami

The collaboration began in 2003. Japanese artist Takashi Murakami unveiled his cheerful interpretation of the iconic Louis Vuitton logo. The Multicoloured monogram became an instant hit, toted by Jessica Simpson, Paris Hilton, and other major celebrities of the early aughts. The artist’s collaboration with the fashion house included several other designs, including the Monogramouflage, Cherry Blossom, and Character Bag collections, each offering playful spins on the brand’s iconography.

Louis Vuitton x Stephen Sprouse

In 2009, then-creative director Marc Jacobs collaborated with artist and former fashion designer Stephen Sprouse. According to Vogue, this partnership was was borne out of Jacobs' desire to "deface" Vuitton's iconic monogram. So, signature pieces from the storied fashion house got a new lease of life in the neon-hued offering which takes as its basis two signature Sprouse concepts: graffiti and the rose.

Hermès x various artists

For its highly covetable range of scarves, Hermès has collaborated with numerous artists to design the prints. Depiction of historical events as well contemporary pop art motifs have all graced the smooth surface of the French fashion house's silk scarves. One of the most highly sought after piece is the Feux d'Artifice scarf. A rare collector's piece issued in 1987 by Hermès for the 150th anniversary of the house. This stunning scarf is designed by Michel-Duchene depicts the “Feux D’Artificier” on horseback with fireworks in the back ground in vibrant jewel tone colours. This is one of the rare scarves that are set in Jacquard silk instead of the normal Twill silk that Hermès uses, Jacquard silk is normally only used for a batch of special designs and would have to be in theme with the scarf. On this piece, the jacquard loom used is also in the shape of fireworks just like the design. This scarf was only issued once in 1987 and has since been discontinued. 

Mary Katrantzou

The abstract prints of Mary Katrantzou's dresses and skirts have always been regarded as works of art.
