Fashion week season is upon us, after New York and London, it’s currently doing its rounds in Milan before heading up to Paris. Bloggers, fashionistas, designers, models and celebrities are out and about in their best (and sometimes most quirky) outfits. If you don’t want to feel left out, why not draw inspiration from Artsper’s selection of the most fashionable artists!
Why ? Equivalent to a Parisian gavroche with a touch of the trashy 70s style, Jean-Michel Basquiat modeled for the brand Comme des garçons.

Why ? Often associated with the motifs of found in her psychedelic art and her hallucinations, Yayoi Kusama‘s dresses can be ‘spotted’ from miles away. These aren’t the easiest pieces to wear but you will definitely stand out from the crowd!
Why? His melon hat and leather boots! René Magritte has a classic, timeless and perennial style.
Why ? In the1980s, Keith Haring’s characters and motifs invaded city walls, subways, warehouses, skateboards but also the clothes he sold. From jeans to shoes and t-shirts, Keith Haring was an artist turned fashion designer.
David Hockney par Robert Mapplethorpe, 1976
Why? Big glasses for a great artists. David Hockney‘s oh so British style should be envied: the classic shirt and jumper combo, the adored classic trench coat and colourful socks to add a touch of quirkiness.
Why? We’d like to steal his genius but we’ll content ourselves with his style. So like, Joseph Beuys, we put on a hat, a shirt and a vest!
EVA & ADELE
Why? This artistic duo goes against sobriety and minimalism, in their minds there can never be too much pink, too many frills or too much jewelry!

Why? Georgia O’Keeffe cleverly controlled her image through her style and clothing. Her black and white ensembles gaver her credibility and an impressive silhouette which helped her become a powerful figure in the art world of her time.
