13 Sep Turning Heads Linkup-Collaboration: ArtTeca-Wearable Art- How I Styled My Silk Scarf+ Denim Look #4
Today I have collaborated with the brand, Artteca, which means “gallery” in Latin, a name very aprapo for this artistic and creative company. The company creates “wearable art” by working with artists from around the world to create contemporary pieces that are bold, colorful and made in the USA. Being a former Music educator, I also loved the fact that Artteca supports and impacts young artists in Art Education. This is my 4th Look on a Series of Denim Trends. I am wearing a dressed up pair of dark wash flares, lace blouse with its detailed edges, and as it is a monochromatic look, brought in color with the Artteca silk scarf and shoes. See DENIM LOOKS: LOOK 1 LOOK 2 LOOK 3. Yesterday’s DENIM look showed how I styled a jean jacket over a trend for Fall 16. Click here to view.
Artteca explains how they support Art’s Education. “A portion of every artTECA purchase will be donated to the Bakehouse Art Complex (BAC) in support of the organization´s art education program: Teaching Artist Residency in Public Schools Program.”
The silk prints are gorgeous, very colorful and bold, and I was certainly attracted to wearing this fall colored print and adding that extra touch to my outfit. There are numerous ways to style this scarf, and I decided to tie it around my neck, almost like a necktie. I loved the olive-green, peach, navy, grey colors that would add interest to my more monochromatic navy outfit. Please take a look at their scarves here.
Artteca sells artistic sporty pants, the sport-athleisure wear that has been so popular in fashion as of late. They also make beautiful printed tops, colorful print tanks, and silky blouses. Since I only have a few scarves in my wardrobe, I was interested in the artistic print of the silk scarf and chose the scarf with more of a Fall color palette. There are so many lovely ones!
My scarf , whose artwork it is based, is by Omar Barquet, and titled ” En Plein Air 1. Acrylic on Wood. 2012″. The artwork that inspired the scarf has many earthy colors and shows movement delineated by the lines between the colors. The eye is taken in by the look of texture in the piece. From Artteca’s site “Born in 1979 in Mexico, he holds a degree in Fine Arts from “La Esmeralda”, the National School of Painting, Sculpture and Printmaking in Mexico City, where he has lived and worked since 2000. His dynamic works of art have been shown in art galleries internationally.
I styled the scarf with the initial idea of wearing a more monochromatic look today, with my navy lace blouse from Ann Taylor, my dark rinse flared jeans, colorful block heels ( you have seen and I love) and the pine green Rebecca Minkoff Love quilted bag. The colors in the scarf would take “center stage” and the navy palette more of the background.
This is the 4thin the Series on Denim Trends, and although I wore flares last week, these are a dark rinse, clean, and worn in a dressy manner. I would wear this out for “date night”, where I want to feel more dressy in my jeans. I know you have seen these shoes, and I would love to pair this outfit with a pair of block heeled booties. I’m looking! I have BF jeans, skinnies and colored jeans I would like to style in the Fall as well.
How might you style this scarf? Would you wear “Wearable Art”?
