The worlds of art and fashion are intertwined like never before, advanced by the increasing number of collaborations between contemporary artists and designers in the marketplace. With an eye to this season's hottest fashion trends, we've pulled together a special Fashion Week collection offering of-the-moment artworks that will translate your favorite seasonal looks onto your walls.

Trend: Black-and-White Graphic Prints

After a year of color blocking and bold, bright hues, designers this season went back to the basics with looks in black and white.

Trend: Cutouts

The midriff-bearing trend of 2012 has evolved into a new obsession with all-over cutouts this spring, with exposed patches of skin peeking out in almost every runway show.

Trend: Oversized Ruffles

The ruffle—often used in sweet, demure ensembles—can be seen this season adding architectural flares and lots of impact to monotone ensembles.

Trend:Emerald Green

Pantone has labeled this jewel-like hue the 2013 Color of the Year, and the sartorial set has taken note, donning the shade of green from head to toe.

Trend: Bold Stripes

Marc Jacobs leads the pack this season with various iterations of this classic pattern highlighting each of his runway looks. However, the trend's appearance within a multitude of recent designer shows helped confirm that stripes are never simple.

Trend:Global Influences

Designers often look abroad for inspiration, but this season is ripe with influences from the Far East in terms of color palettes, patterns, and embellishments.

Trend:White Hot

Generally a summer staple, white is staking its claim early this year. This season, the monochromatic neutral is appearing in all shapes and sizes, including structural dresses, menswear looks, and lacy-delicate fabrics.

Trend: Luxe Leather

A timeless classic, leather is always in style. This season, the material is back in a variety of colors and is used in both minimalistic and trendy silhouettes.


This staple fabric has evolved from everyday workwear to an element of designer luxury. This season's denim trend comes in a variety of different shades that can be worn together to complete a denim-on-denim (aka Texas tuxedo) ensemble.

Trend:Electric Colors

Neons are everywhere this season. The bright hues are lighting up both clothing and accessories—which is perfect for anyone hoping for an attention-grabbing outfit.

Trend:Floral Delights

All things are blooming this spring, with the perennial favorite print making both a romantic and graphic revival.
