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!
