Gustav Klimt, meet Oscar de la Renta.


As soon as I saw this dress I thought of the painting by Klimt (above right) - wearable art!
1970s Oscar de la Renta dress in black silk & gold lurex. The Danae dress, in the shop now.

I adored the dress from the moment I saw it in the shop! I was sad when I saw that it is too small for me, even more so now that I see such a beautiful peice of art in it.
{I am comforted knowing that a stunning black and gold knit treasure is on its way to me, however!}
xo, A.

You find the most incredible dress treasures! There's something so romantic about wearing a Klimt painting; the warmth and sensuousness of his art has always appealed to me.

Hi,
Thanks for sharing this, it's beautiful! Klimt is also my favourite artist, and inspires me everyday. I found more information about his life and an extensive painting gallery on this website WahooArt.com where you can even buy a great quality oil painting reproduction.
