For Young Art Lovers, a Cy Twombly Tribute Dress

The late Cy Twombly‘s sensational “Peony” (pictured) and “Rose” paintings were a hit with fashion designers. Wearable homages to the artist’s distinctively dripping blossoms popped up in collections by the likes of Jason Wu and Rachel Roy shortly after the paintings were exhibited at Gagosian’s New York and London galleries. More recently, Twombly’s bold crayon and pigment flowers have trickled down to the younger set, thanks to J. Crew. The company’s Crewcuts kidswear label is offering this cotton sateen frock printed with painterly plum “poppies.” And while Twombly’s blooms have long since scattered to lucky collectors for price tags we’d peg in the low seven figures, J. Crew’s “On-the-Button” dress is currently on sale for $59.99–and is machine washable.

Don’t miss the opportunity to see Twombly’s last paintings, together with about 100 of his photographs, on view at Gagosian’s Madison Avenue gallery through December 22.
