"Over the last decade, major artists have teamed up with top fashion houses to produce contemporary masterpieces that challenge the traditional boundary between these two dynamic cultures. From fashion designers' collaborations with artists on their collections to catwalk shows, fashion photography, and dazzling new retail spaces, this book explores the 'art as fashion' and 'fashion as art.' The authors offer a dual perspective on how and why today's artists and designers are increasingly open to inspiration beyond their own creative arenas. Five thematic chapters feature profiles of the key designers, stories about the most avant-garde projects, and interviews with leading figures in the art-fashion crossover. More than 350 illustrations showcase collaborative efforts by Acne Studios, Balenciaga, Bottega Veneta, Hussein Chayalan, Cai Guo-Qiang, Zaha Hadid, Hermès, Jenny Holzer, Calvin Klein, Jeff Koons, David LaChapelle, Helmut Lang, Stella McCartney, Issey Miyake, Prada, Cindy Sherman, Viktor & Rolf, and many more"--Provided by publisher.
