There seem to be so many legendary artists with a flair for pequliar fashion, it was only natural for fashion author Terry Newman to explore their connection in a new book called LEGENDARY ARTISTS AND THE CLOTHES THEY WORE. Iconic artists and their idiosyncratic stamp carry unique sartorial choices through a signature look, hairstyle, or accessory.

Newman explores the connection between their art and their style, as well as the nonlinear sensibility that has shaped modern style. It examines the intimate dialogue between art and fashion, as well as noteworthy artist and designer relationships, such as Yves Saint Laurent’s Mondrian Collection, primary-colored shift dresses inspired by the painter’s work, and Louis Vuitton’s numerous groundbreaking collaborations with major artists, a concept initiated by designer Marc Jacobs that not only has launched some of the fashion industry’s most successful bags, made the art of contemporary masters available to the world at large, and been copied widely ever since.

Marina Abramovic, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Louise Bourgeois, Salvador Dali, Marcel Duchamp, Keith Haring, David Hockney, Robert Mapplethorpe, and so many more inhabit the pages of this brilliant publication that also shares a mix of anecdotes, portraits of the artists in their studios with their work, self-portraits, and runway imagery, as well as quotations from the artists, art and fashion critics, and designers, and little-known facts about the artists themselves.

This is a fresh look at art and fashion that illuminates the connection between both creative forms and deepens our understanding of these two influential aspects of culture. Why not get a little inspired by the greats?
