The Art Of Dressing For A Gallery



There’s a new, upscale attitude about to hit town. Expressive colour and sharp cutaways are signalling a smart about-turn in daywear. Well, aren’t we getting tired of down-tempo boyfriend denim and the rock’n’roll leather biker?

What you need to know about the new mood: primary shades that conjure Matisse’s joyful collages, Mondrian’s angular lines or Alexander Calder’s surreal shapes are set to inject a joyful confidence into your style. Case in point: Emilio Pucci’s emboldened striped dress – evidence that clashing scarlet with Baker-Miller pink is a very good idea. This is how to lend a modern edge to a sundrenched urban wardrobe, at home or further afield. Relish the time out from tailoring: cue lilac, mandarin, lime green and graphic white – this is about a clever palette of unusual colour pairings that capture the imagination, and the eye.

Your spring/summer silhouette is also the subject of a new style movement. The slash-neck top elevates daywear (and guarantees after-dark allure) – look to Stella McCartney’s bold, off-the-shoulder version. Keep the minimalist momentum going with Balmain’s uber-flattering white trousers – the ultimate blank canvas and your shortcut to easygoing elegance.

Accessories are likewise key. Pick a standout item that shouts “collectable”. Flashes of chrome and Anish Kapoor-esque mirrored surfaces are your wearable artistic cues – Marni’s lustrous sandals will add polish (literally) to any outfit. The finishing touch? A pair of architectural earrings; now your everyday essential. Grab your best girlfriend and dart off to the sell-out exhibition. The art gallery is now the place to breakout a bolder, braver new look that blazes with new-season optimism.
