Art or Fashion.. Part 2

I thought I’d share with you some more Art inspired fashion.


One of the trends for this summer is “White Wedding” with “experts” claiming that the 2012 Olympics, Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the European Cup will act as a cultural aphrodisiacs, resulting in more marriages and births. With different designers taking the trend in different directions we have a selection of tomboy tailored separates from Paul Smith and Givenchy, Louis Vuitton took us back to the swinging 60’s and Rei Kawakubo at Comme des Garcon took us to the cake shop……. yes you read that right, the Cake Shop. With a series of multi-tiered dresses that resemble giant wedding cakes, teamed with frothy shoulder capes and sculptural headwear this  real is extreme Bridal wear.

The modern 4 tier wedding cake.
The traditional 3 tier wedding cake
The simple understated cake
The designer cake
The art deco cake
The chocolate profiterole topped cake
The caped crusader cake
The chocolate and vanilla cake
The highly decorative Dollie inspired cake
The princess cake
The diet cake
The Ghost Buster cake
The Veil cake

Now these ensembles are probably not what most brides will be thinking about when they are choosing their wedding dresses, and I can’t really see them working down your local high street either. They are how ever a great accolade to Rei Kawakubo and Comme des Garcon who really let their imaginations run wild! With collections like these I always love looking at them and trying to find out the inspiration and thoughts behind them. Which makes me think that the fine line between art and fashion is becoming thinner and thinner.
