Pollock-print turtlenecks from the MoMA gift shop are one way to incorporate art into your wardrobe.
A more creative solution: Fort Makers’s sophomore endeavor, The Dress Project. Brooklyn duo Naomi Clark and Nana Spears teamed up with designer Lauren Nevada on a twenty-piece collection of conceptual, oil-painted frocks.
Finding inspiration in a vintage fabric painting how-to book, Clark brushed large, abstract patterns onto wall-size swaths of silk and cotton before passing the canvases to Nevada.
The resulting one-of-a-kind button-down shirtdresses aren’t overly designed, and the A-line skirts and tie waists flatter virtually every figure (the kind of instant outfit you need when you’re running late).
Like all art, the price ($745) is worth it if a piece speaks to you.
