If you don’t know who Donald Robertson is, your Instagram feed is seriously missing out. The artist captured the attention of the fashion world with his renderings of Anna Wintour and Carine Roitfeld using only the stroke of a paintbrush and pieces of neon gaffer tape. Bergdorf Goodman tapped him to collaborate with designers Clare Vivier, Alice + Olivia, Estée Lauder and Kenzo, and the resulting collections launch exclusively today at the fabled department store. What’s more, the artist himself will be on hand to customize purchases so head there now if you’re in the area and pick up one of these spectacular one-of-a-kind pieces.

The only thing better than owning one of Clare V.'s refined envelope clutches, is getting a hand-painted version. Not only are these one-of-a-kind creations unique, but Clare V.'s designs are notoriously practical and easy to wear—making this accessory a justifiable splurge.

Alice + Olivia's founder and designer, Stacey Bendet, teamed up with Donald to create a limited edition silk blouse printed with rows of the artist's signature fashion characters. Donald also painted the custom skirt Stacey is pictured wearing (above)—which will be displayed in the Bergdorf Goodman windows on Fifth Avenue in NYC starting today.

Since a cool T-shirt is de rigueur for weekends in the Hamptons, there's no doubt these hand-painted tees will be ubiquitous at the beach this summer. The oversize T-shirts possess an undeniable street-style quality with their graffiti meets couture vibe—add a pair of statement sunnies and skinny jeans and you've got your weekend uniform covered.
