Fashion Friday: Collection Connections

Milliner Sally Victor frequently made references to works of art in her hats, including this Piet Mondrian–inspired example. Victor’s willingness to look to museum objects for the source of designs led one colleague to demean her as being “only a taste assembler.” (We disagree.)

Opposition of Lines, Red and Yellow,” 1937, by Piet Mondrian

For a project entitled 2D Or Not 2D, Russian make-up artist Valeriya Kutsan teamed up with photographer Alexander Khoklov and photo editor Veronica Ershova to recreate famous two-dimensional artwork by legendary 20th century artists, such as like Roy Lichtenstein and Piet Mondrian, on three-dimensional faces. The results are absolutely stunning.

"Kutsan’s skillfully handled make-up brushes produced images that straddle the second and third dimensions—in some cases, the models look more like flat, illustrated versions of themselves instead of living flesh-and-blood."
