In Exclusivity for Trendland, artist Caitlyn Carlisle, created this Lens series where she found art inspiration into the latest runway collections.

The Lens series combines fashion with art by examining current collections through the “lens” of various artists from Kandinsky to Baldessari. Elements such as shape and color influenced the pairing of designer and artist, although the fashion show’s set and collective design were also taken into account.

The series is a result of researching and imagining how each artist might understand the creative process and develop a piece of work inspired by the clothing. These artists have all been highly influential and much recognized for their work and specific style. Their accomplishments made it exciting yet very challenging to do these artists even a small amount of justice.

The focus of the series, however, is found in the artistic synthesis, underscored by the connective references behind each illustration while keeping balance and direction through personal aesthetic. Created digitally for limitless exploration and cohesiveness, Lens is an experimental cocktail of art and design that acts as a humble homage to a handful of extraordinary artists and designers.
