Artistic Inspiration: Pablo Picasso

Continuing with the idea of artist inspired outfits, I thought I'd use the work of Pablo Picasso.

The stripes and spots in Dora Maar aided the painting's sense of movement. I used the colors as a base and tried to choose items with texture: tiered skirt, flared sleeves, buffalo plaid scarf, plaid bag, and square bangles. Texture on the shoes would have felt like overkill on an already funky outfit.

Girl Before Mirror inspired a bright look for a fifteen-year-old.

While Three Musicians provided the color base, I tried to think of things that you wouldn't immediately put together. The result, a military inspired jacket over a tiered cocktail dress. The fractured nature of the heels made them perfect for an outfit paying homage to the father of Cubism. To top it off, I'd wear mismatched earrings.
