How we wish this were wearable. All hail the queen of sculptural fashion, Iris van Herpen.
In a perfect world, everyone could be their own Kanye and wear glitzy Margiela masks to the grocery store. This is not that world, but it seems that every fashion week tempts us to make a statement and just try that angular neoprene dress. High fashion and fine art have a long (and expensive) shared history, but combining the two needn’t be impractical. Below are our picks for truly wearable, mostly affordable, art-inspired fashion. May the streets be your runway.
