Fashion loves art, and designers love to pay tribute to artists—Yves Saint Laurent put Piet Mondrian on his graphic mini, Miu Miu collaborated with John Wesley, Dior’s Kim Jones has worked with Peter Doig, and Louis Vuitton handbags brandish Yayoi Kusama dots, to name just a few. But what if an artist was directly asked to make something that was inspired by a designer? For this portfolio, that’s exactly what happened. We asked 10 artists from different parts of the world if they would respond to recent collections. Vogue paired each one with a particular designer, and the artists had complete freedom to do what they wanted.
