Each season, fashion designers cite artists, specific artworks, or artistic genres as a source of inspiration for their current collections. With New York Fashion Week off to a strong start—and London, Milan, and Paris sure follow suitwe've pulled together a list of Fall's hottest trends and an ensemble of contemporary artworks that translate these looks right onto your walls.

 

TREND: METALLIC SHINE

Be it cool silvers, rich golds, or iridescent jewel tones, metallics claimed the throne on the runways this season, as seen at L'Wren Scott and Balmain.

TREND: WINTER WHITE

From Derek Lam to Proenza Schoeler to Valentino, designers this season put forward a strong argument that white is indeed appropriate after Labor Day.

TREND: PUNK

To coincide with the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute exhibition "PUNK: Chaos to Couture," a number of designers adopted the stylistic language of Vivienne Westwood, sending chains, leather, and spikes down the runway.

TREND: MENSWEAR PATTERNS

Pinstripes, houndstooth, and herringbone aren't only for mens suits. This fall, these classic menswear patterns have been reimagined by designers like Dries Van Noten and Marc Jacobs to make coats, skirt suits, and scarves look incredibly chic. 

TREND: PASTEL COATS

From baby pink to lavender, strong pastel hues illuminated outerwear on the runways of designers including Celine and Rodarte this season. 

TREND: BOLD FLORALS

Often a favorite motif on the spring catwalks, designers such as Thakoon and Oscar de la Renta updated the trend for fall with earthier tones and bolder patterns.
