La Mode Et L'Architecture

A link between fashion and architecture. 
J.J.P. Oud, WeissenhofsiedlungStuttgart, 1927 &
Chanel Ready to Wear by Karl Lagerfeld, spring 2012.

We've all seen the amazing Mondriaan collection from Yves Saint Laurent from 1965, the Roy Lichtenstein dresses from Lisa Perry, the Van Gogh prints at Rodarte and the Picasso inspired knitwear at Jil Sander for spring 2012. 

The Chanel spring 2012 collection made me make a link between Chanel and De Stijl architecture. At first sight I thought about Malevich' supremacy paintings, but a second thought brought me to the building Weissenhofsiedlung in Stuttfart by J.J.P. Oud. The abstract white with black lines were also in the Chanel Spring 2012 collection and brings art, architecture and fashion even more together.

Chapeau Karl!
