Style Inspired by Street Art

lauren messiah perrierThis post is brought to you by Perrier and their fancy new street art inspired bottles, which PS are beautiful!

One of the many things I love about living in a big city is that inspiration is everywhere. Filling my head with new ideas and inspiration is a key ingredient to success in my line of work. I happen to live a few blocks away from LACMA but what I find almost more interesting is the art I walk by on the streets while shopping for clients. A graffiti covered wall might inspire a cool pop of color to a ho-hum look or even a combination of colors that I may not have tried in an outfit before.

Lately I’ve been inspired by graffiti artist Banksy. If you haven’t seen Exit Through the Gift Shop, do yourself a favor and see it. I love how a lot of his work is very neutral (gray or white wall with black) and then has a brilliant pop of red.

In celebration of Perrier‘s fancy new street art-inspired bottle, I have created a look inspired by graffiti and street art. Since, at this period in my life, I am not one to pile on the bright colors – I kept it Banksy style. I wanted a neutral look with a pop of red (my Tom Ford lip color in Cherry Lush).

I started with my fall staple, leather pants by Current Elliot. Today was actually the first day this fall that it’s actually been somewhat cold in LA so I was BEYOND excited to break these out. On top I went with a basic gray tee by Enza Costa (my fave) and punched it up with a sequin jacket by IRO. A few silver rings from Thailand and a pair of shoe-booties rounded out my look.
