Art on the streets






My jaw dropped when I stumbled across this color comparison series, where Miss Moss matches street style photographs with old-school artwork. Bravo!

Laura said...

I love how the outfits seem to be stollen fragments of the artists images... brilliant idea.

astridland said...

Beautiful pictures!!

Lulu said...

A very creative idea!
I like #3 & #4 the best. Especially #3 - the look and way the person is dressed in the photograph has the same vintage/European vibe as the artwork.
Always cool to see innovative fashion/photography sites!
