Dior Lady Art – Ian Davenport Interview

Hi Fashion Fumies,

Here we find an interesting collaboration for the new DIOR handbags. Artist Ian Davenport.

Many of Davenport’s works are made by pouring paint onto a tilted surface and letting gravity spread the paint over the surface.[7] He has usually worked on medium density fibreboard rather than canvas, and most often employs household gloss paint, meaning the viewer can see their own reflection in the work. He has made a number of diptychs and triptychs as well as single works. Wikipedia

Ian Davenport

Below video Ian Davenport explains how he and DIOR created pieces that basically have me foaming at the mouth with desire. DIOR Lady is a handbag style, Lady Art are the ones done in collaboration with artists, very cool.

Check this out. AMAZING!

      Yeah, I totally agree Hikmat. I love when big business finds artists to collaborate with.

    While I refuse to consider that “art,” as an applied design for a bag I think it’s perfect!

      HA! Undina, you never pull your punches.
      How fabulous for a bag, I agree.
      What I was sadly surprised to note though was the DIOR Lady art bags are all being taken from male artists work. Kind of a bummer.

        I think I disagree with you 🙂 I think that for any purposes the selection should be made on merits only. We do not need an “affirmative action” policy for gender (it didn’t work that well for race, as we have seen). It shouldn’t matter if it’s a man, woman, or thinking octopus – as long as they produced the best design.

        OK, I take your point but of the 6 or 8 designs used in the 2017 DIOR Lady Art Bags they couldn’t find one woman? Yes, meritocracy is the way to go but seriously, not one woman from the whole world of art could stand up against the artists used? For a DIOR Lady bag? I find that very hard to believe Undina.
        Of the artists chosen more than half are bags I would buy if handbags were my thing. It would be very cool to mix modern art & fashion in daily life.
