Like his couture dresses, this ready-to-wear line - a mix of cocktail party frocks and strict evening wear wasn't lacking in brightly colored silks. The high-slit peachy rose gown, with its sheer bodice and 3D floral embellishments, might be most enticing for the A-list set, but the series of sprinkled-on glitter dresses was even more eye-catching.

From Yves Saint Laurent’s famous Mondrian dress, to the diverse art-world collaborations instigated by Marc Jacobs’ at Louis Vuitton, fashion has often sought inspiration from art. And, for Spring/Summer 2014 the trend continues as one of the key inspirations at Céline was said to be Brassaï’s graffiti work, as sketch books were carried like accessories at Chanel and illustrations by the likes of Jeanne Detallante, Gabriel Specter and El Mac appeared printed on looks and across the walls at Prada.
The result: next summer’s fashion promises to be illustrated by everything from paint brushes, to spray cans and graphite.
