The intersection between art and fashion is always intriguing and at last week’s annual Frieze art fair, many of the creations on display seemed to blend with signature looks of Fall 2014.

The artistic movement of incorporating fashion trends in images seems to have grown over the last four seasons in a seductive new form of artistic expression. Artists as Stanley Whitney and his piece Hummingbird in Manhattan, is a good example of that trend in that it seems to match the sensibility of the last Altuzurra collection which featured colored cubist furs.

Body wrapping knits were the signature of Christophe Lemaire’s Fall collection. The soft fabrics and neutrals created soft lines that provided a luxurious second skin. Volumnuous pants with flowing silhouettes accentuated the body in a non obvious manner and that  way alluring effect bears a striking similarity to the erotic image  Soap by famed photographer Mario Testino that had a prominent place in the exhibition.

Psychedelic influences were the inspiration of Tomas Meier’s creations for Bottega Veneta this season. His body-covering puzzle patterns provided his primary statement with a sharp focus in the construction of the clothes providing an extra level of luxury in his pieces. That kind of sensibility finds its perfect match in the Frieze display of water-color collages of Guo Hongwei.

DelPozo’s angelic figures were among the biggest hits of New York Fashion Week , and creative director Josep Font has helped developed a new language for the house that was initiated by Jesus del Pozo. The Madrid label showed a collection that was inspired by retro-futuristic novels and such artists as the painter Duilio Barnabe. Those looks were mirrored in the Frieze-featured work of  painter Amikam Toren.
