But is it art?

This season, art is no longer just hanging in museums but on your clothes hangers too.

The art movement to be wearing this winter, seems to be pop art.

The best example being the Andy Warhol Collection for Pepe Jeans.

Although Warhol himself is no longer with us, I think he would definitely approve this conversion of his work to fashion. His work is all about using different media, mass production and breaking the rules of art.

But Warhol is not the only inspiration, when flicking through Glamour I saw a dress by Iceberg featuring comic book graphics. A clear tribute to Roy Lichtenstein's work.

I love how something as common as a comic book, can first became art, and that that art now becomes fashion. I love the whole evolution of media.
