Pretty In Paint

Basso & Brooke

Jackson Pollock meets D&G, Basso & Brooke, and Chloe. Designers are painting their frocks whether they are actually hand painting the clothes or using paint printed fabrics, this modern art is everywhere on the runway this spring.
Dolce & Gabbana even hired young artists to come into their studio to paint all sorts of fabrics from cotton to silk. The designers then created beautiful and arty garments out of them.
Basso & Brooke created silk dresses that look like a graffiti artist got hold of them.
Brush stroked silhouettes are by no means a new trend. They were very popular in the 1980s into the early 90s. Even Alexander McQueen got his spray can out for a collection in 1999.
I don't know about you, but I would love to own one of these dresses, especially from Basso & Brooke.
Extra tidbit: Dolce & Gabbana will be producing a limited amount of their painted dresses and rumor has it they cost between $20,000 - $40,000.
