Design: Thinking Made Visible

“Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.” – Coco Chanel

Image

Any room can look sophisticated, chic, and classy. The color combination of black and white is always the best route to go. Black and white for a design theme is tasteful, refined, and modern. Simplicity is a timeless luxury. A bedroom is a perfect place to create with your own style. IKEA is a great place to find the right bedroom furniture. Bed, Bath & Beyond is also a good place for the most stylish decor.

“What’s the difference between good design and great design? …the price.” – IKEA

Fashion is Art

“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street; fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” – Coco Chanel

1. Yves Saint Laurent and Piet Mondrian:

Image

During the 20th century, Dutch artist Piet Mondrian became a major influence to fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent. Laurent designed the Mondrian Collection, featuring dresses based from the designs and paintings of Mondrian. In 1965, the collection was featured on the front cover of French Vogue. Mondrian’s paintings, called “Compositions,” were composed of straight, forceful lines along with the colors blue, black, white, red and yellow. These abstract paintings were transformed into famous shift dresses that are sophisticated, simple and chic. The Mondrian Collection helped Yves Saint Laurent lead the fashion trends for the 20th century.

Image

2. Gianni Versace and Andy Warhol:

Image

Gianni Versace was able to capture the eccentric and colorful works of Andy Warhol in the 1991 evening gown design featuring Warhol’s famous Marilyn Monroe and James Dean paintings. Versace, being fascinated with celebrity significance, turned the paintings into wearable designs. Both Versace and Warhol are known for their flamboyant designs and colorful palettes. Versace’s designs matched well with the early 1990s style of fashion. Versace designed both tight skirts and long dresses with Warhol’s designs. The wacky and zesty Versace fashion pieces helped both the fashion house and Andy Warhol expand their names.

Image

3. Louis Vuitton and Takashi Murakami

Image

One of the best known fashion and art collaborations is between Japanese artist Takashi Murakmi and fashion house Louis Vuitton. The collaboration started in the early 2000s with the then Louis Vuttion creative director Marc Jacobs. The first creations were monogram bags. Murakmi is known for his exhibition “Superflat.” Famous names such as the Juicy brand, Kayne West, and Paris Hilton have been seen with the designs. The collaboration definitely made a statement for both Murakmi and Louis Vuitton. This evolution of art and fashion brought Louis Vuitton into a new and creative generation.

Image

4. Rodarte and Vincent Van Gogh

Image

The Spring 2012 collection from Rodarte is obviously inspired by artist Vincent Van Gogh. The dresses and collection were like a copy of the painter’s famous works. Famous celebrities like Taylor Swift, Solange Knowles, and Dakota Fanning were in attendance for the revealing of the collection. Van Gogh’s painting, including the well-known “Starry Night,” were transformed into fashion pieces. Rodarte brought modern trends, like cut-outs, and Van Gogh’s colored and swirling prints, into the style of the 21st century.

Image

5. Chanel and Zaha Hadid

Image

Chanel is known for extravagant and fantastic endeavors, including a traveling pavilion gallery. In 2008, the Chanel Mobile Art Pavilion, designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, traveled to Tokyo, Hong Kong, New York City, and Paris. The pavilion was made of mostly steel but also aluminum extrusions and plastics. The structure was elegant, exquisite and versatile. Karl Lagerfeld wanted to celebrate the Matelasse bag along with contemporary art. The Pavilion was presented in a futuristic way by Beaux-Arts magazine’s director Fabrice Bousteau. It was donated to the Arab World Institute in 2011. The glamorous Pavilion brought attention to the art and architectural world in relation with the fashion industry, done by the utmost amazing Chanel brand.
