Art history meets Fashion


“Frida Dream”
Original: Self-portrait dedicated to Dr. Eloesser by Frida Kahlo
Added: @h0les_eyewear
 

This is the painting of Frida everyone seems to be reposting on every social media. But, do you really know were it comes from?

This is a project started by Georgetown University sophomore and Nasty Gal summer intern, Chris Rellas. It’s fashion photobombing historical art.

Recently we’ve seen a lot of art on the runways of well-known fashion brands like Prada. But here we have a project that does the other way around and it seems to have caught the eye of many on Instagram.  It’s @CopyLab. Starting out as an Instagram account, Chris perfectly well mixes iconic paintings with fashion accessories and logos. Along with the paintings comes really creative titles for his creations like “Reachin’ for the Birkin”//

Esta es la pintura de Frida que todos parecen repostear en las redes sociales. Pero, sabes de donde viene?

Este es un proyecto empezado por Chris Rellas, estudiante de la universidad de Georgetown haciendo pasantía en Nasty Gal. Se trata sobre la moda invadiendo el arte histórico.

Recientemente hemos visto mucho arte en las pasarelas de marcas conocidas como Prada. Pero aquí vemos lo contrario y parece haber capturado la atención de muchos en Instagram. Esto es @CopyLab. Comenzando como una cuenta en Instagram, Chris mezcla perfectamente pinturas conocidas con accesorios y logos de moda. Junto con las pinturas vienen títulos muy creativos para sus creaciones como “Alcanzando la Birkin”

And The Last Supper by Juande Juanes turns to “He broke the Hermes, gave it to his disciples and said…”//

La ultima Cena por Juande Juanes se convierte en “y asi partio la Hermes, se los dio a los discipulos y dijo…”
