Modern Style Apparel – Artworks in Fashion

Thursday, 04 November 2010

modern style apparelFashion is often named as one aspect of conceptual art due to matching of various elements when the unique and individual image is created with the help of clothes, accessories, color palette and other details. The link between the fashion and other spheres of art is traditional for many centuries. That is why the reputed fashion designers introduced the basic rules adopted for wear collections in modern style.

The French couturier Paul Poiret, one of the influential trendsetters of the early twentieth century caused the modern style popular in France called art nouveau in clothes. Being in high society of France, Paul Poiret collaborated with many famous artists of the epoch collecting their works and getting inspired in modern creative works to build his own collections.

Throughout the first half of the XX century fashion repeated itself and interpreted the crucial tendencies set by modern style in art. The esthetics of the modernism was first introduced by designers in S-shaped silhouette with ever-lasting girdle which told on the modernistic interpretation of the female shapes of the century. This silhouette was soon replaced by the first simplified silhouettes of the female wear shortly before the World War I when fashion designers inspired by the modern style refused creating girdles in favor of general simplicity and somewhat practical cut. During the 30s straight lines were first introduced in dresses that smoothly fitted the shapes.

The modern style was personified in smallest design in the unusual tailoring and the fabric with stylish trimming and accessories. When creating fresh patterns in the early twentieth century, the designers followed the natural motifs of modern style. The exclusive cylindrical style of dresses and round hats add to the woman body the image of the geometrical figure or set of them which replicated the geometry of modernist painters.

Modern style in fashion today

Being the cyclical phenomenon, fashion repeats itself with a particular interval and there is nothing surprising that most reputed designers regularly get inspired in modern style rules praising the modernist esthetics in their collection. The traditions of modern style were followed by the most legendary designers as Christian Lacroix and Miuccia Prada, Lee Alexander McQueen, Angela Missoni and Anna Sui. Alexander McQueen, the designer from Britain, who ceased his life so tragically, was one of true adherents to the modern style and thanks to his extravagant works he was named the enfant terrible of the British fashion. Several seasons to his liking for the «digital» prints resembling exotic patterns of reptiles, Alexander McQueen launched the collection that was completely created on prints in art nouveau style. McQueen offered romantic chiffon blouses decorated with patterns replicating the elements of modernist esthetics.

One of the major peculiarities of modern style in art is rejection of straight and direct lines and angles in favor of curved and smoothed lines. The source of inspiration for artists who follow the modern traditions was the ornaments from the plant kingdom. Yet, this key peculiarity of he modernist esthetics is today seen in works of fashion designers as well as modernist-painters who followed the conception of natural lines and curves.

On the whole, the plant motifs transformed by modernists of the XX century are still favorable for collections of fashion wear in modern style.

The American designer Anna Sui presented the new Autumn-Winter Collection 2010-2011 several weeks ago at New York Fashion Week that was also built on modern style, namely the modernist interpretation of classic ornaments. Fine motley twists of plant motifs of classic blouses and tiny cute dresses created by Anna Sui add some special intensity and diversity of colors due to blending of vivid shades against the contrasting black color.
