In recent seasons, the gradient technique has dominated the finest collections gateway, advocating a gradual and no uniform distribution of color. Now, the preference for a game decompensated palette of color get a new turn of the screw in a trend that is based on the street art of graffiti. This summer, the cross mini dresses, tunics, caftans and smock tops come alive through irreverent graffiti, aggressive brushstrokes and splashes of color that seems to be totally out of control.

In a frantic search for more expressionism exacerbated every designer uses their own tricks and inspiration to their clothes to identify with the illegality of urban graffiti. Dolce & Gabbana, for example, opts for a mix of shapes and sizes at which their corsets and dressed in lavish period dyes mixed with intelligence romance of the Fifties with modern painters like Julian Schnnabel that base their work in abstract art.

Precisely enriches Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton bags with jokes, jokes and monogram jokes that are the product of an outstanding collaboration with the artist Richard Prince.
