Mashing up Milan menswear with art

Using classical and contemporary artwork, the @artlexachung girls continue to decode menswear SS16

After drawing out the classical references at LC:M, art history connoisseurs @artlexachung have returned to take a cultured look at this season’s menswear offering in Milan. The pair proved that the London shows were dripping with artistic links – drawing out the likes of Caravaggio in the drapery at Craig Green and Mondrian-style graphics at Liam Hodges. Milan has followed in a similar vein – with the oversized coats at Versace resembling the work of Picasso, and a reclining Bacon portrait appearing at Tod’s. Check out the full series of comparisons in the gallery above, and follow @artlexachung on Instagram here and on Tumblr here.
