An artful twist for Valentino Pre-Fall 2015
Are you swooning yet?
I suppose I go on and on about fashion as it relates to art as if it’s my life’s mission don’t I? Well, in all fairness, I don’t know that it’s not so pardon my broken record.
Anyway. Well it was only a matter of time before I stumbled upon such a perfect, why-didn’t-I-think-of-that, blend of art and fashion. Diana Moss is the curator behind missmoss.co.za, a beautiful little corner of the internet populated with inspiration potpourri from thousands of different sources.
And though most of her posts feature external creative content, Miss Moss proves to be quite the creative prodigy herself. Her ‘color comparisons’ are a divine reinterpretation and lovely animation of —i’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times— fashion and art. And what an eloquent way of achieving this aesthetic— superimposing fashion masterpieces upon painted masterpieces. Because what better way to bring a collection to life, than to thrust it into a painted dreamworld? Each blended presentation is deserving of an editorial spread in the centerfold of your favorite magazine.
The mutual color palettes seamlessly mold two worlds while the overall aesthetic between the two fits like a puzzle piece. It is the perfect example for how fashion is inspired by art and vice versa. The two coexist so beautifully upon one canvas that one would begin to doubt that there ever were two separate art forms to begin with.
The featured images, though she has many more “color comparisons,” are a merge between Valentino’s pre-fall 2015 collection and paintings found on Bukowski’s. Visit here to peruse more of these runway-to-museum mashups.
