Style Imitating Art: Klimt & FashionPosted: January 15, 2013
Given how Klimt and the subject of this portrait, Emilie Flöge, designed most of the gowns worn in his paintings, I can’t think of a more appropriate inspiration to kick start Style Imitating Art 2013:
First up we have Jen of Librarian for Life and Style, who couldn’t find anything in her closet that works, so she decided to create four marvelous Polyvore sets that offer year-round interpretations of the painting’s rich colors and gold accents. My favorite is Winter; which one’s yours?
Next is Teddi of Honeybee Lane, whose usage of texture and metallic accessories is spot-on:
Rebekah of From the Mixed Up Files is wondering if she should keep or donate this cardigan in this outfit – I’d say keep, don’t you agree?
We have a new participant this week – Madeline, all the way from Hungary! Welcome to SIA, Madeline. Doesn’t she look lovely in her print dress?
Not only does my co-creator, Jess, have a lovely outfit, but her photo location (the Neon Museum in Vegas) is super cool too:
The always awesome Pao of Project Minima contributes this badass kimono:
Then it’s Noelle of Tilly’s Notions with the perfect beaded shirt:
And finally, here’s me. Full outfit post to come tomorrow:
It never ceases to amaze me, the different interpretations you can get from just one painting. Thank you ladies!
