Much has been said about the differences between fashion and art. Rei Kawakubo said: “The aims of fashion and art are different and there is no need to compare them.” American photographer Duane Michals opined: “Fashion deals with whim, what is temporary, what changes, what is transient, what is now and not now. Art has to deal with issues that are timeless, that never change.” And while Olivier Theyskens agrees that their relationship has been quite “tenuous”, he acknowledges that there have been many cases where designers and artists have built relationships or one-off projects to “amazing” effect.

"While respecting the differences between fashion and art, L’Officiel Singapore’s aim for our May issue was to encourage respectful collaboration and interaction between the two – motivated by recent alliances including this season’s Fendi tie-up with visual artist Sarah Coleman, we tapped local graphic artist Samuel Xun, who put on his thinking cap to present the season’s choice headgear. Singaporean installation artist Priyageetha Dia, meanwhile, gave her Midas touch to the Bijoux section’s Time & Tide. You’ll also find four out-of-the-box, multi-disciplinary creatives from the +65 (tattoo artist included) in Style, and even scenes of the New Orleans Museum of Art in this issue’s Mode pages," says Editor-in-Chief, Ian Lee.
