Dress like in a Klimt painting

klimtLast week I spent the weekend in the beautiful Vienna: during museums marathon, lunches and dinners in wonderful little places, I also got to admire Gustav Klimt‘s art quite often. He was one of the most significant artists of the Austrian Secession movement, and the most striking aspect of his art, to me, were his women’s portraits. These ladies were often socialites of the Austrian capital at Klimt‘s time, sometimes friends of his, other times flings. Woman In Gold, released in 2015, was a very successful movie that brought this artist under the spotlight again. “Klimt’s women“’s dresses sometimes blend with the artwork, other times they become the main subject of the work. Among this explosion of gold, flowers and mythological figures, we thought about what these ladies might actually really wear, if they happened to walk out of their painting’s frame. We aren’t entirely sure we can take them shopping with us, but what is for sure is we can invite them for a coffee and a slice of delicious Sacher cake!
