Surrealism is a 20th century art style that focuses on nonrational art derived from automatism, chance and the use of the subconscious. This fall, it seems that surrealism will extend beyond museums and galleries and make a name for itself in the fashion world, particularly through accessories. From YSL’s sculpted wedge heel to Delfina Delettrez's triple anatomik ring, these accessories will add a fabulous artistic spin to any look. This Fashionista boldly sets the trend with her double face watch inspired by none other than the surrealist, Salvador Dali. Although Dali would most likely be more interested in the nonrationality of a double face watch, as a study abroad student in Florence, it is not only artistic but also rational and practical. This Fashionista, who came across her unique watch at Urban Outfitters, told me she can quickly tell what time it is in Italy and back home for when she wants to contact her family. But this stylish and creative piece is not the only unique way to demonstrate your artistic flair. Dali is most famous for his melting clocks, so check out these creative and fashionable surrealist-inspired watch options for this fall as well. The great thing about these surrealist pieces is that they can be paired with anything.
Spotted: In this runway look, YSL adds a surrealist twist to a fall classic: the black boot. The Robyn High Heel Wedge Lace Up Boot sports the sculpted heel that YSL has artistically incorporated into many of their shoes for this fall.
