Art & Fashion/ Fashion & Art

I find it fascinating how different modes of art can inspire and draw elements from each other, for example the influence of music movements on the fashion industry has been an ongoing for decades. However, at this year's Spring/Summer fashion weeks it seems that designers were finding their inspiration in some of the most influential painters in history. Whether through a literal translation or a looser influence art and fashion truly came together this season. 

So pretty and whimsical, no?

Burberry reinvents its classics with a strong color palette 
reminiscent of Rothko's paintings.

Who knew cubism could be so chic?
