Pop Art stole my heart

Today is a rather special day! Besides the fact that today is the first day of Spring, there is one other small fact –  this is my 30th post, hooray 🙂 ! One of the main goals when I started to do this blog (besides showing you my obsession with Desigual 😉 ), was to show some of the amazing Croatian designers. Croatia is a a rather small country, but artistic talent here is huge, in my humble opinion 🙂 !

I love this skirt by very talented Croatian designer Zoran Aragovic from Bite My Style fashion design, and she inspired me for today’s topic – Pop Art, and it’s neverending influence in fashion and design. I love my clothes to be colorful and bold, and this outfit doesn’t fail me in that department – hope you’ll enjoy it!

Art is what you can get away with. – Andy Warhol

Pop Art has made its way in London and New York almost 50 years ago. One of the greatest artists of the genre is undoubtedly Andy Warhol, with his Marilyn Monroe canvases and Campbell’s Soup can, and it is he who most people will immediately reference when presented with the term Pop Art.

…and his iconic Marilyn Monroe canvas

When Andy Warhol portrayed iconic American objects such as Campbell Soup cans in a new and bold way, even Campbell’s decided to capitalize on Andy Warhol’s inclusion of their product in his art by selling a paper dress with their soup cans as the design.

Designers have always looked to Warhol for inspiration, be it his shambolic sense of personal style, or his art itself. Gianni Versace in the Nineties featured Warhol’s Marilyn print on dresses and legendary punk designer Stephen Sprouse (who was a member of Warhol’s inner court) made regular use of Warhol’s iconic prints in his collections. As these two greats of fashion design and their ilk inspire the rising young designers of today, so does Andy Warhol’s influence live on.

Of equal importance to American pop art is Roy Lichtenstein. His work probably defines the basic premise of pop art better than any other through parody. Selecting the old-fashioned comic strip as subject matter, Lichtenstein produces a hard-edged, precise composition that documents while it parodies in a soft manner. Lichtenstein used oil and Magna paint in his best known works, such as Drowning Girl (1963).

Pop art has definitely made a great impact and influenced the fashion world over the decades. In pop art, color plays a big role, often in geometric patterns. In most cases pop art interacts with objects drawn from popular mass culture and everyday life. Very often you can find series of images with faces of famous people.

Today, pop art still inspires designers, art, architecture and runway couture.
