The Fall 2012 Miu Miu collection drew upon fashion of the ’60s and ’70s, reworking them in a way which was at once nostalgic and new. It inspired me to make psychedelic art of my own, imitating those famous albums covers and posters from the ’60s that I am completely obsessed with. I drew upon the work of artists who defined the psychedelic art movement – such as Heinz Edelmann, Martin Sharp, Victor Moscoso, Marijke Koger, Keiichi Tanaami, Tadanori Yokoo, John Alcorn, Peter Max, and Milton Glaser. I found many through the book Electrical Banana by Daniel Nadel and Mati Klarwein, which I highly recommend.
I created fictional album covers for the band “Miu Miu,” by drawing upon different styles from that time and integrating textiles, patterns, colors, and imagery from the collection. And they were really fun to make!
