LACMA (the Los Angeles County Museum Of Art) is making a major mark in the world of fashion with the launch of their third Wear LACMA campaign. Past seasons enlisted designers like CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund runner-up Juan Carlos Obando and Gregory Parkinson, and this season they’ve partnered with two designers we D-I-E for: Greg Chait of the Elder Statesman and Jennifer Meyer.
The program challenged the L.A. locals to design pieces inspired by the museum’s permanent collections. Chait referenced James Turrell’s totally trippy light instillation and Meyer was inspired by Ed Ruscha’s “Made In California.” The result? Cool, collectible cashmere tees and an 18-karat gold nameplate necklace, among other limited-edition designs. This year Net-a-Porter even got in on the action, supporting the program by featuring select items for the first time ever on their site, with proceeds benefitting LACMA.
Availability: The Elder Statesman for Wear LACMA Feather-Print Cashmere Scarf, $265 (coming soon); Printed Pocket Cashmere Tee, $485 (coming soon); Jennifer Meyer for Wear LACMA Made in California Diamond Necklace, $6450.
