Famed artists like Salvador Dali and Piet Mondrian have been used as fashion muses for years. They’re familiar designs covering everything from mini skirts to infinity scarves. So it’s about time some new blood hit the racks.
Alice + Olivia is rolling out a capsule collection of clothes and accessories displaying the work of ’80s Neo-Expressionist Jean-Michel Basquiat. And I love it.
Bendet created the 17 piece collection with the permission and advice of the Basquiat Estate. Prices in the group run from $150 to $1,295; half of the proceeds from the collection will go to the Council of Fashion Designers of America to help promote young talent.
The roll out had some hot faces modeling the wears.
Nikki Hilton-Rothschild is seen wearing an adorable sweater with JMB’s signature crown as she poses with Alice + Olivia Creative Designer, Stacey Bendet, also in a piece from the line.
Also donning the new duds, model Nina Agdal (gf of modelizer Leo) and Nickelodeon star Victoria Justice.
OMG I need this clutch. (The $495 price tag might prevent that)
Hit aliceandolivia.com for the collection!
