part/WHOLE 'Abstract Realism' Look Book
part/WHOLE is a Boston based clothing brand owned by Co-Founder of Metropolitan Society, Stephen Hopkins. The Abstract Realism collection "explores imagery and symbolism that stems from Baroque and Renaissance artwork but can be applied to contemporary contexts and materials. For example, the realistic quality and textures of garments and drapery in old master works juxtaposed with the material qualities of translucent plastic sheeting. A specific example of this is depicted in the "Veil" hoodie shown on the second image. This collection is an attempt at drawing lines that stretch from these old art movements and applying them to a contemporary context."
