The Artsy Moments You Missed At Mens Week
Marie Antoinette, Cindy Sherman and Warhol
Uncategorized 28 Jun 2019

Art and fashion have been involved in a long and turbulent love affair for what feels like centuries. It’s mens week in Paris and you can bet your bottom dollar that many of your favourite designers have been turning towards their art muses to help them put their finishing touches on their collections for Spring/Summer 2020. Here, we’ve summed up the designers who owe the art world a big thank you for helping them polish off their looks for the next season.
Chloe Wise at Etudes

French line Etudes collaborated with Canadian artist Chloe Wise, which saw her hyper-realistic paintings printed on fabric. Pieces included shirts, pants and dresses, and what’s more they’re unisex (we want them all!).
 Cindy Sherman at Undercover

Japanese designer Jun Takahashi – the brains behind Undercover – teamed up with American artist Cindy Sherman for his SS20 show. The photographer’s famous self-portraits were printed on a series of black tailored looks.
Revolutionary France at Thom Browne

Thom Browne served us some serious Marie Antoinette vibes. Proving that gender fluidity is here to stay, his models appeared in larger-than-life skirts holding pastel-coloured parasols.
Japanese Prints at Kenzo                       

The impressionists were inspired by Japanese art way back in the 19th century, and it seems now Kenzo is too, with what looks like images from woodblock prints appearing on sweaters parading down the runway.
Flower Power at Dries van Noten

Dries van Noten’s new collection seemed to be heavily inspired by the natural world – so 2019. One coat in particular reminded us of when Andy Warhol made flower prints, and we love it.
Daniel Arsham at Dior

Kim Jones enlisted American artist Daniel Arsham – famous for his futuristic work – to help with the set for the Dior Show. The artist sculpted the letters in the word DIOR as though they had eroded away, with jewels coming out of them. Literally as though Dior has fallen into the past and a bejewelled world had sprung up in its place.
