Art  Imitates Fashion

Une visite à la Neue Galerie à l’angle des mythiques 5th Avenue et 86th St s’avère être une vraie source d’inspiration vestimentaire.

Il y a quelques mois, j’étais allée y découvrir une expo consacrée aux publicités allemandes du début du 20ème siècle. L’utilisation de couleurs vives, des contours noirs épais, avait déjà trouvé une résonance chez moi. Et le génial t-shirt Être Cécile acheté quelques mois plus tôt semblait en être un prolongement intéressant.

Je suis retournée à la Neue Galerie pour voir l’expo Gustav Klimt (jusqu’au 16 janvier !) et j’ai été bluffée – une fois encore – par l’utilisation de la couleur dans ses œuvres enluminées. Les vêtements et accessoires dans l’œuvre de Klimt me donnent envie de repenser la façon dont je m’habille au quotidien, et d’intégrer plus de couleurs et de motifs dans ma garde-robe hivernale d’habitude très sombre.

Et vous, d’où est-ce que vous tirez vos inspirations vestimentaires ?

    I just watched Simone Rocha win a beautiful prize from the British Fashion Awards. I started to go through some of her older collection films and I found a great one where she talks about how inspired she was by her grandmother in Hong Kong and all of her friends. In this film, one can see a really nice array of old Chinese ladies out on the street in their everyday clothes. There were so many cool ways of layering fabrics, patterns and styles. That was absolutely my style inspiration for – at least – today.

  • It’s basically « art » as well, but I guess everything really falls under that category; comic books. Not just the over-the-top heroes, but there are a lot of edgier, dreamier, and weirder comics nowadays. The artistry and stories in them are so inspiring and amazing. If you’re ever interested in giving them a peek, I definitely recommend Monstress, Shade the Changing Girl, and Paper Girls

  • Come to Vienna, we would show you Klimt, Schiele and all the others!
    It´s such a beautiful City!
    By the way, we are organising a congress für female journalists and media-people and we would be honoured, if you will join us in November 2017!
    Maybe it´s possible to send an short answer to this email, so that we can correspond in a « serious way »! :-)
    Best wishes

  • I would say it is the other way around! Fashion (which could also be seen as a form of art in some cases) imitates art! All the time! ;)
