Nicole Farhi drew inspiration from Gustav Klimt's "Adele Bloch-Bauer I" (1907) for her Fall/Winter 2012 collection
A mix of quirk and elegance came through in the shows that took place during London Fashion Week, along with several art-inspired collections. Alice Temperley drew from Renaissance paintings, sisters Annette and Daniela Felder took from Ryan McGinley’s cave photographs, and Erdem Moralioglu cited collector Peggy Guggenheim as his muse. ARTINFO puts forth a selection of London Fashion Week’s art-minded designs.
