Suddenly, fashion is fun again, thanks to designer Misha Nonoo and contemporary artist Dustin Yellin. Yellin’s artistic grand-scale “Psychogeographies” inspired Nonoo’s latest spring/summer collection, creating a unique focus on the subtleties of what really works for the female form.
In reference to the artist’s work containing contrasting textures and mixed materials suspended between layers of glass, Nonoo has placed external dimensional pockets on rather classic and clean silhouettes, overlapping already oversized ties into place. Herringbone shoulder chains and inverted pleats add a definite artistic play on otherwise straighter lines. Nonoo also worked Swarovski Crystals and rose gold-coated fabrics into her collection for additional zing.
The designer isn’t the only one having all the fun this season, Yellin, too, is enjoying their collaboration. The artist made a surprise, and rather hilarious, lap around the catwalk for the show. These two could very well settle that old debate on whether or not fashion really is art after all.
