LONDON — Men’s wear designers and tailors including Ralph Lauren, Giorgio Armani, Paul Smith and Richard James asked their favorite artists to pick up a needle and thread. And their collaborative works are on display at Esquire magazine’s “Singular Suit” exhibition at Somerset House here.
“Our readers are very interested in art and fashion, and bringing the two worlds together for this exhibition seemed like a very exciting idea,” said Jeremy Langmead, editor of British Esquire, who commissioned the works more than six months ago. “This year, men need their battle dress and what better way to face the slings and arrows of 2009 than by wearing a suit?”
