Net-A-Porter’s ART CAPSUL Collection

NET-A-PORTER, the luxury fashion ecommerce website, recently announced the launch of ART CAPSUL, a series of exclusive capsule collections of bespoke garments curated by art curator and style icon Stacy Engman. Beginning in July, the retailer will sell made-to-order items from top contemporary artists including Mickalene Tomas, Marina Abramovic, George Condo, Terence Koh, and Vik Muniz. ART CAPSUL will showcase iconic elements from each of the artists’ works (there most definitely will be some sort of swarovski-studded ensemble from Tomas!)

While we wait on pins and needles for the complete collection to be unveiled in just a few weeks, I bring you some works characteristic of the artists to get our minds working about what these bespoke items will look like!

All I Want For Christmas…

I am that girl who browses fashion magazines and is automatically drawn to the most expensive item on the page. It’s a problem, because then I start dreaming about all the beautiful things I just can’t have (that is, until I make my millions).

This year it was more of the same, and these are a few of the things I have been dreaming about this holiday season.
