Just in time for the 11-gallery Damien Hirst spot-fest at Gagosian, fashion designer Cynthia Rowley has partnered with the artist Olaf Breuning to create a spotty dress inspired by the Hirst paintings, to be sold at Paris’s Colette throughout the show.
The dress takes its inspiration from a recent Breuning show at Metro Pictures, “The Art Freaks,” which featured nude human bodies painted in the style of famous works—the piece titled Damien featured spots, so you can see how one thing led to another. The dress retails for some $550. Ms. Rowley and Mr. Breuning last collaborated at MoMA PS1′s “Move” exhibit in 2010, a project that had them repeatedly dumping paint on models.
Makes you want to start a mod band! The Hirst show opens Thursday.
