Patriotic pop culture, style inspirations

DVF’s iconic Wrap Dress featured on the cover of Newsweek Magazine from March 1976.

Couturier, Coco Chanel’s simply sophisticated signature look featuring the Maltese Cross Cuff by Verdura, America’s crown jeweler.

Andy Warhol Flowers 1964: This very classic masterpiece exhibits Warhol’s unorthodox use of colors. Warhol himself had a very slick sense style and dubbed the phrase, “it takes a lot of work to figure out how to look so good.”

Jackson Pollock No. 8, 1949. His way of splattering and eye for color is surreal!

How can I forget the classic blue Tiffany Co. box? The signature little blue box is the epitome of luxury American jewelry. As you can see, I collect the boxes just like I adore the jewelry….

Historically, European traditions have influenced many of the globe’s prominent artists and fashion designers. But, throughout the last few decades, American pop culture has profoundly influenced the forefront of contemporary design. Although I madly covet many historical and modern Euro couturier trends, sometimes going for all-American classics is just more sentimental. Diane von Furstenberg’s (DVF) iconic Wrap Dress is perfect for the office or casual bliss, plus it’s available in a palette of vibrant hues, patterns, and prints to complement every complexion. Cherished by couturier, Coco Chanel herself and integral to her signature look, Verdura’s classic Maltese Cross Cuffs are a timeless investment piece for any fashionista. Plastering the walls of numerous renown exhibits, Andy Warhol’s sharp compositions pioneered pop art, while Jackson Pollock’s masterpieces deeply impacted the world of abstract expressionism.

Anyway, creating runway inspired looks with designs by native trendsetters is just as gratifying, as admiring each individual piece itself!
