season’s best pieces inspire us to broaden our cultural horizons.
The perfect statement piece for all of your upcoming art happenings, Dries Van Noten’s fringed Rero Coat evokes the feeling of abstract paintings. In a similar vein, Loewe’s Ribbed Maxi Dress features a blurred color palette print. Inspired by the traditional Japanese artform of Shibori dyeing, Julia Heuer’s Uma Dress features an unexpected color palette and hand-pleated silhouette.
In the world of music, Wales Bonner’s 'Volta Jazz' collection finds its inspiration in 70's Western African music culture. The brand’s Rhythmo T-Shirt features a graphic that references 'Sound Reverberations' on the back. Raf Simons also looks to music for this season’s collection. The brand’s Grimcrawler T-shirt features a graphic that references a fictional metal band and its tour dates.
The relationship between fashion, art, and music is a continuing force behind creative greatness. From ancient Japanese art to metal posters, this summer season proves that great source material creates great collections.
