Fashion's current preoccupation with art is effectively the death knell of the minimalist look – most art (Donald Judd and his ilk aside) is about getting messy. This new abandon is evident even at Céline – once home of no-spillage minimalism – where paint swooshes filled the spring collection. While a Dior campaign out now features the very-refined Marion Cotillard contrasted against drips of paint on a wall, the paint splatter of an artist's studio clothes is set to become the motif of 2014. As well as Céline, a pair of splattered trousers in the J Crew collection already have a buzz about them and Martin Margiela has a pair of very smart brogues covered in paint. Messy, but pleasingly so. (Cochrane, 2013g).
