3-D Aesthetics, Represented

Fashion is like no other art. Your canvas is not only three dimensional; it's alive. Architecture might not come alive, but it is consuming; there is no picture that can replicate the sensation of being in that same space. Unfortunately, I can't transport you to the moving art of a fashion show or the imposing surroundings of a vessel. However, feasting on their lines is still an option...

One of my favorite sites for (let's just call it what it is) dreaming and stimulation is The Cool Hunter. Although The Cool Hunter covers anything Cool, I am madly addicted to their Architecture editorial. If that isn't enough to satisfy your cravings, Architectural Digest is another site to savor (be sure to view their Glass Houses). But, if you really need to binge, then go ahead and add Contemporist to your lineup. If none of that suits your palate, then hopefully Trend Hunter will deliver (for some functionally outrageous architecture, try out their Daring Architectural Sites).

The wedding of fashion and architecture is nothing less than interior design. Although I'm saving interior design delight for another post, Hotel Missoni is an example of the blending of fashion and architecture that is nothing short of perfect. This past summer, Blouin Art Info  took note of Hotel Couture, design houses that are spreading their haute style to the realm of luxury hotels.

So, where does this leave us? Dreaming of decadent clothes, fantasizing about phenomenal structures, and lusting to live in a design house world. Want much?
