You had me at Basquiat. For those of you unfamiliar with artist Jean-Michael Basquiat, allow me to introduce you through today’s outfit. Basquiat is an American artist first known for his graffiti painting in the lower East side of Manhattan during the 70’s street art movement. He later went on to exhibit neo-expressionist works in museums internationally, including the Whitney in NYC.
I personally love his abstract mix of imagery and text and was instantly drawn to this standout collaboration from Alice + Olivia. Contemporary art and fashion merge quite fantastically in this funky, whimsical 17 piece capsule collection. I’m really crushing on this skirt, just need to find somewhere to wear it. I guarantee you’ll see lots of bloggers donning this fashion forward, fashion-meets-art collection during New York Fashion week next month. Read more about the Basquiat x Alice + Olivia here.
