Yesterday I went to the Statens Museum for Kunst and besides being overwhelmed by the amount of GREAT art and the want to immediately bust out my paints, I started to notice some of the cool accessories that the subjects of these painting were rocking. (So ‘me’ to notice that of all things. Ha ha. ) Even though most of these works were from the 1700-1800’s, I felt like their accessories looked very current–so much so, that I challenged myself to find current accessories that resembled these details from these centuries-old artworks. I think I did a pretty good job :P –and isn’t it funny how some of these folks even look kinda hipster? Like Can’t you picture Jan Verkade having a cortado at Intelligentsia? Or that homie with the hat at the Roman Osteria having an R2 at Sqirl? Ha ha.
Get the looks:
