Wednesday Wearable Fashion





I have broken free from the chains of Cleopatra. As a child the extent of my creativity limited me to well within the boundaries of the lines in my coloring books. I thought that is what composed great art. I guess that by the same mindset I boxed myself in to the same hairstyle since kindergarten!!! Straight Bangs and straight hair! Cleopatra would be proud of me. My coloring book principle served me well until yesterday.

Yesterday my usual hair trim turned into one Glorious Gory Cleopatra Scissor-Saw Hair Massacre. I gleefully reveled at the growing pile of hair surrounding my chair. Great art is drawing outside and beyond the lines. Feeling like a bona fide artist with matching edgy hair…Goodbye Cleo…hello Picasso…


In celebration of my new hairdo and paying homage to all great artists enjoy “Wearable Art!”



How serendipitous that as I mention the great artist Picasso’s name, I come across Jil Sanders 2012 Spring Collection which is inspired by who else?



Jil Sander and Pablo Picasso




Rodarte and Vincent Van Gogh




Yves Saint Laurent and Mondrian




Diane Von Furstenberg and Andy Warhol




And of course great fashion designers are themselves great artists.  These creations are priceless and most of us can just ooohhh and aaahhh…but then for those who can afford it, they are wearing ART.

Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel Spring 2012




D&G Summer 2011 Collection

Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen Spring Summer 2012




Of 5 great up and coming young designers to keep an eye on as mentioned by Chictopia – Ashish, MSGM, Ellery,Thomas Tait, and Mary Kantrantzou – I am placing all my bets on Mary Katrantzou.


Mary Katrantzou is a Greek designer who studied at Rhode Island School of Design and then completed both her BA and MA at Central Saint Martins. While the color palette of her designs differ seemingly every season, two things remain constant – bold, almost digital-inspired graphics, and a flattering female form. Her stellar and unique designs have won her Emerging Talent – Ready-to-Wear award at the British Fashion Awards 2011 and international acclaim. Her designs can be found at Net-a-porter, Opening Ceremony, and Nordstrom, to name a few.



An artist whose canvass is wearable textile and whose silhouette  transports you into another world. I unashamedly share with you Mary Kantrantzou’s Spring 2012 Collection. Unless otherwise indicated all images are from mayasari.net. I am going to be closely watching this gifted artist rise to super stardom in the fashion world. Her clothes are ART.
