Art Meets Fashion Under Nancy Jimenez's Watchful, Blogful Eye

Sure, sure, we've been talking the marriage of fashion and art for a while now. And we're all about seeing a Pollock in a Dolce or noting the Surrealist undertones in a Marc show. But Nancy Jimenez, mad genius behind the wackily-named blog Yellow Orange Wonderland, takes seeing connections to a new level. Did you ever think, for example, that you'd compare the Alexander McQueen feather dress from fall '08 to a feather chair by Elyse Hochstadt, or Riccardo Tisci's massive gold chains to a jewelry chandelier by floto + warner? Yeah, us neither. These comparisons are as unexpected and uncanny as it gets. Jimenez has been archiving fashion images for years before she began to relate them to art, but we tell you: This woman has a gift, our friends. Share in the magic by clicking over to Yellow Orange Wonderland, and start dropping those Posen-Klee or Dries-Gaugin comparisons at your next fancy cocktail party like it ain't no thang.
