Fashion brands are increasingly turning to the art world for collaborations. Just this month, both Missoni and Alice + Olivia released new projects, and Gucci has found all sorts of ways to bring artists into its fold.
Dior is the latest brand to extend an invitation to the art world, calling upon seven contemporary artists (Jason Martin, Ian Davenport, Mat Collishaw, Matthew Porter, Daniel Gordon, Chris Martin, and Marc Quinn) to re-interpret the Lady Dior bag and small accessories in a project called Dior Lady Art.
Ranging in price from $4,900 to $11,5000, the collection features bags in a variety of materials and charms that accent the themes. Standouts include Davenport’s melting metallics, Collishaw’s abstract butterfly, and Porter’s surreal, car theme, which recalls pop art.
