Doing art. Seeing art. Living art. Marte and Georgia know that expressing yourself is good for the soul.

Of all the eccentrics from the early 20th century, none have left as memorable of a mark on fashion and art as Marchesa Luisa Casati. With her kohl-rimmed eyes, penchant for extravagantly wild parties and an extraordinary ability to surround herself with the most talented people of her time, Marchesa is regarded as a “work of art” – a fate she craved – as well as a paragon of extraordinary ostentatiousness. Here, we look back on the eccentric woman’s crazy lifestyle, as well as the fashion designers who find inspiration from it even today.
J.Crew is getting artsy with its latest collaboration for spring—today, the retailer announced a new collection with street artist Michael De Feo, also known as @theflowerguy who has been creating beautiful works of art for nearly 25 years. He's famous for placing his works in unexpected places in more than 60 major cities around the world, including New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Cabo San Lucas, Amsterdam, Paris, Venice, Buenos Aires, and Hong Kong.
What we love about this collab? Wearable art in the form of De Feo's signature floral brushstrokes printed on a few of our favorite J. Crew silhouettes. Three styles are available, retailing between $40 and $50, and as of today, they're currently available at jcrew.com and in stores. Shop the designs, below.
Fashion month is upon us, and the big four fashion capitals are all awash with their own set of street savvy style icons. It’s almost as if, now more than ever, each city is on a mission to outdo the next. This increased creativity has resulted in some seriously distinct shows, but is curating an outfit the same as curating an exhibition? Is sculpting a silhouette similar to sculpting a bust? Are front row selfies really considered photographs? The debate is endless, and the main question posed is this: is fashion an art form? While the jury’s still out on most of these musings, these five designers are covering their bases by experimenting in both fashion as well as art.
