Art vs Fashion

Feb 20, 2017

Art has forever been inspiring fashion (and vice versa), on the catwalk and on the street, so we've compiled 15 of our favourite examples in line with London Fashion Week. With art inspired fashion, fashion inspired art and exciting cross-discipline collaborations. Beginning with the prolific Takashi Murakami...

Takashi Murakami

Murakami has collaborated with many greats such as Google, Pharrell Williams, Damien Hirst, Macy's, Vogue, and fashion guru: Louis Vuitton. Murakami has joined forces with Louis Vuitton on numerous occasions. Forming beautiful creations together, their collaborations have been a major success for them both, propelling Murakami further into the public eye.

Magda Archer

Next up is one of our favourite colalborations from this year. British artist Maga Archer collaborated with British designer Jenny Packham this year for New York Fashion Week - the outcome saw some exquisite hand-painted pieces that Hang-Up wouldn't mind adding to our collection! Take a look at some snapshots from the runway below...

Hand-painted leather jacket, corgi dog silk t-shirt and corgi dog scarf.

Artist/Activist, Vermibus, alters advertisements across the world, directing his focus on body portrayal - 'The image of the body in advertisements limits and oppresses an individual’s true beauty, concealing it behind the false rhetoric of its own liberation.'

David Hockney

David Hockney has inspired many a catwalk collection. He's also quite a style icon himself, having a large collection of Saville Row suits...

One of Maria Rivans favourite faces to work with is fashion icon Audrey Hepburn. Adorning her subjects with other-worldly collages.
