Taking an urban excursion to the Museo Soumaya in Mexico City or a public art tour in downtown L.A.? Not only can you appreciate art but you can also wear it.
For the Chanel spring runway show, Karl Lagerfeld staged his own art gallery opening, complete with Chanel-related works on display. That spirit translated into whimsical, streetwise accessories such as a silvery pearl choker that's a dead ringer for a pair of stylish headphones, and a flap bag in a print reminiscent of test colors on a paint palette.
Surreal cutouts, stripes and satiny silver details converge on Pierre Hardy's limited-edition Lavarama high-tops, which are one groovy pair of kicks. And riotous paint splatters elevate Tom Binns' crystal earrings from stately to Abstract Expressionist statement.
Phoebe Philo's Céline collection was inspired by graffiti, with painterly strokes of color on long tunic tops, pleated skirts and copper cuff bracelets. And Miuccia Prada sampled political street art from all over the globe, putting colorful portraits on furs, dresses and handbags, which were shown with bejeweled Teva-like sandals to keep the feet of her modern power women firmly planted on the ground.
