Artist/ Designer Collaborations- History Lesson

Sort of. The lines between fashion, art, architecture, film, interiors and every other creative medium are frequently blurred. The latest remix comes courtesy of Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri of Valentino. Their alliance with the Australian artist Esther Stewart resulted in an awe-inspiring, geometrically colour-blocked Fall ’15 menswear collection. It reminded us of many spectacular partnerships past.

Louis Vuitton might be leading the way (Sprouse, Murakami, Buren etc.), but the YSL Mondrian holds a special place in history.
