Pop Art + Fashion

I recently had the chance to check out the Pop Art Prints exhibit at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery here in D.C. (it’s on display through August 31) — and was amazed. There were pieces from 1950s and 1960s artists including Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol and Robert Indiana — all of whom’s work is still as extremely relevant today as it was when first created.

National Portrait Gallery: Pop Art Prints

Seeing the decades old artwork made me think about how fashion, too, is cyclical (think: flapper dresses on the runway circa 2012/2013 and Halston era looks revived thanks to Carrie Bradshaw). Pop art and fashion have crossed paths time and time again (on the high- and low-end of the spectrum) — from Tom Ford’s fall 2013 collection to Jeff Koon’s recent collaboration with H&M. I couldn’t even resist the popular Boom sweatshirt from the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target diffusion line last year.

Pop art-inspired clothing helps add a bit of whimsy to your look without being too garish as long as you don’t overdo it (think: one item worn at a time). I’m planning to add a new piece or two to my fall fashion wishlist.
