While clothing serves a functional daily purpose, the magic of fashion is its ability to create fantasies with sartorial aesthetics. This explains why such a commercial field is a constant subject in museums, as well as the endless collaborations between designers and other creatives, such as photographers, performers, and visual artists. After a decade dominated by minimalism and streetwear, many brands are pushing into Spring 2019 with a renewed appreciation for louder ensembles, playing with unexpected patterns, gravity-defying structure, and plenty of sparkle. The looks fill the need for clothing that transitions between seasons in the most fun way possible, and they find a perfect home alongside the artful qualities of modern interior design. Each trend pairs with an iconic chair, an approach that finds common ground between two fields by showing how they creatively fulfill functional needs. Below, find four major reasons to think like an artist when putting together your next outfit (or living room).
