SS ’14: Art is in the Air

Following on from my last post, below are a few Spring Summer 2014 campaigns influenced by brush stroke and graphics. From Kenzo’s surreal pop art campaign featuring Devon Aoki, to Christian Louboutin’s literal works of art by artist Peter Lipmann, to Dolce and Gabanna’s map-print boxer-clad statuesque men, the different takes on this trend are as diverse as the genres of art movements that they were influenced by.

Isabel Marant for H&M

hm01

Everyone’s been talking about the Isabel Marant collection for H&M that launched last week in stores. With a star studded campaign (featuring Milla Jovovich, Alek Wek, Daria Werbowy, Devon Aoki and Saskia de Brauw) and a range that saw the best pieces flying out of stores in the first few hours, fashionistas were in a frenzy. Celebs and socialites started posting images online of their Marant pieces with a “Look what I got first!” attitude. Customers queued overnight to get into stores first to get their hands on the most popular Marant items. In London stores customers were given 15 minute time slots to do their shopping in and were issued with different colour wristbands. Online sales went heywire as some online shoppers who had ordered items were later told items were out of stock due to the range being oversold in stores. The range consisted of ladies and menswear, with her beaded embellished jackets and grey tasseled boots selling out the fastest.

The French designer is best known for her easy wearing highend streetwear style, her unique crafted jackets and knitwear as well as her wedge high top sneakers.

View some of her campaign images and most popular items below.
