From hosting Insta-worthy exhibits and fashionable costume balls to being a blogstar-faved photoshoot backdrop, LACMA knows how to please our city's most stylish art lovers. To toast its 50th anniversary, the museum continues its Wear LACMA collab series with a killer roster of LA designers.
Available at Farfetch.com and LACMA's gift shop this fall, the range ($50 to $1,000 and up) features limited-edition clothing, jewelry, and fragrances inspired by the museum's permanent collection, including archival photographs, contemporary art, 16th- and 17th-century European paintings, ancient objects from Mexico and Iran, and more. The museum tapped 19 local talents for its latest Wear LACMA collab, including Anita Ko, Co, Dosa, George Esquivel, the Elder Statesman, Freecity, Greg Lauren, L’oeil du Vert, Libertine, Monique Lhuillier, Jennifer Meyer, Irene Neuwirth, Juan Carlos Obando, NewbarK, Nick Fouquet, Rodarte, Clare Vivier, and Cathy Waterman.
Rodarte will produce tees and sweatshirts inspired by John Baldessari's LACMA logo, Lhuillier will design two dresses inspired by a 16th century French water pitcher, Libertine will craft a jacket inspired by photos from the 1960s, and Ko will create accoutrements inspired by a wooden surfboard from the '20s, to name a few.
