WET PAINT!

I was really inspired by the blazer that Arlando altered and posted on his blog, http://arlando.net/

It got me thinking about paint as a means for personalizing clothes, and I’ve been seeing it everywhere since!  From accidental splatters on ‘studio’ pants to trompe-l’oeil studs on leather bags, I’ve just really been diggin’ wearable art this spring.  I think I’m going to have to attack some of my clothes with a brush and some fabric paint one of these days…perhaps some white keds?

Arlando is wearing the sports coat here in the work-in-progress installation that he and Zack are doing for Hybrid art that features, what else?  Paint splatters.

And a few shots of everyone’s favorite paint-slinger in action… plus two people that I caught on the street, a printed pattern interpretation on the runway at BCBG Max Azria’s Spring 2010 RTW show (which looks more like brush strokes than paint splatters), and a beautiful hand painted vintage leather bag by VivienCheng on Etsy, $160:
