Monday Morning Inspiration/Graffiti Fashion

A few weeks ago, I saw a piece on the collaboration of artist Fututa 2000, a former graffiti artist, and Virgil Abloh, the artistic director of Louis Vuitton's menswear collection. With this collection, Abloh took streetwear to luxury wear. I was so very impressed.

The fashion show is well worth watching. Yes, it's menswear, but so much of it translates to women's wear. The show is beautiful and artistic. A feast for the eyes.




Living in a city like Chicago, graffiti is everywhere, and sadly, so much of it is now done to mark territory by gangs. I love that Mr. Abloh was able to take something that has been destructive and turn it into something so beautiful. Graffiti, gangs, lack of opportunity, wanting to be heard, all are a very deep subject without a simple solution.

  1. Love this! It is something so achievable for the kitchen sink artist inside most sewists.

    1. One thing I have come to realize from all my years of riding mass transit, and looking at lots of graffiti, it's much more involved than we might think. But, I think it's worth a try :)
