|Vine by Air Tattoo|
Air Tattoo is "Wearable Art For Your Neck". I love the idea behind this Kickstarter. There are four different necklaces to choose from, all vastly different from one another and giving off different moods. And, while these are some great designs, I don't know how practical they'd be or how well they would go with clothing. Sure, they look good on a naked model - baby vomit would look good on a naked model (too far?). But, on a clothed model, it looks a bit...awkward.
All that said, I may still take a chance on these beauties. There's only three days left to get them until the campaign ends on Kickstarter, so get on it!
Black Milk Clothing
|Der Kuss Dress for 90 AUD|
Holy mama, I freakin' love Black Milk. Black Milk is a clothing company based in Australia that loves nylon. They have legging, bathing suits, and dresses which are all made with fashion aware girls in mind. My favorites are the pieces with classic art printed on them. The picture above is a print of Der Kuss by Gustav Klimt, one of my favorite pieces of art. There are other pieces featuring pieces by Van Gogh and pieces which are just plain artistic.
Wearing Black Milk definitely takes some guts because the pieces are so loud. But, I think the payoff is worth it. If only James Jean was featured on the site...
James Jean Jewelry
|Constellation for 600 USD|
James Jean, my favorite living artist, has a beautiful line of jewelry. There are five "sections" in his line - Drip, Butterfly, Bone, Strata, and Bat. They are all so vastly different but beautiful and detail oriented. However, these pieces are insanely expensive. Nothing is under 300 dollars, which is very disappointing since his jewelry is so unique.
He offers scarves and shirts as well. If you have the money, go for it. Maybe buy me something while you're at it.
Do you guys have any pieces you love which incorporate art into the aesthetic? Hate art as fashion? Feel free to tell me about it!
