Stella McCartney Meets Internet Art
Always one to do things first (she created fashion active wear before everyone and their mothers started sporting Nike Frees), Stella McCartney has created a new collaboration with Internet artist and Venice Biennale alum Petra Cortright. Petra’s work is the epitome of 21st century art, and we agree with Stella who told The Cut, “I was instantly struck by Petra’s work, her effortless cool-girl approach. She represents the next-generation Stella girl to me in every way. Her work is mind-blowingly cool and she is the real deal.” The collaboration consists of a series of videos in which Petra does what she does best while donning McCartney’s namesake designs. The first one, Dot Warp With Door, has just been released, and it’s as trippy as you expect Internet art to be. Don’t worry, your computer isn’t frozen, that’s just Petra’s groove.
