Many of my posts have discussed Surrealist art and its influence on fashion. Trends in fashion, particularly retro-inspired trends, are often influenced by museum exhibitions. After exhibits like Hats: An Anthology by Stephen Jones and the upcoming Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations, surrealist themes continue to spill over into the fashion world.
Take this window display for Gaziano in San Francisco. These two mannequins clearly reference the works of Salvador Dali and Rene Magritte.
Surrealism strikes again! (Many thanks to my friend Avinash for sharing the photo from Gaziano. )
