Pop Art Sweaters and Handbags

Pop Art Sweaters and Handbags A talisman for protection, a symbol representing the universe, your current mood, and a medicinal plant leaf are all ingredients in the Pop Art Sweaters Collection for fall/holiday 2015. During its emergence in the 1950s, Pop Art challenged the dominant views on what art should be by creating art out of current popular culture and daily routine items. Rebellious and inspirational, it captured a historical time in a new way and changed the definition of art. Today, our daily routine consists of many things. Symbols reflect our lives. We use emojis to express our “digital”...
