Graffiti Trend in 2014

Graffiti and wearable art in fashion, although seen on the Celine and Christian Dior runways for Spring 2014 RTW  – and as early as two years ago, Pre-Fall 2012 – have not hit mainstream consciousness yet, but will.  Perhaps in small doses, if you consider a Hugo Guinness T-shirt for J.Crew, graffiti?  The trend is not going away either.  Prada’s 2014 collection features multiple pieces, including printed fur, inspired by art.

Crossover to interiors, no doubt will occur.  Art is the easiest trend translation (as with neon lighting that I alluded to, here.)  My favorite graffiti paintings come from the fearless and sometimes politically incorrect Nantucket artist, Stephen Pitliuk.  One day, one of his will grace my walls…
