Amazing Comparisons

Check out these very cool color comparisons by Miss Moss.  She took photos that had been posted on the Sartorialist over the years and matched them based on color with famous paintings.  The results are stunning!

She has also done a variety of other color comparisons, taking film and fashion shots and pairing them with things such as textile prints, vintage ads, and photographs of flowers.  Here are a few of those images:

This is really a part of what I like to do here, identifying relationships between the various arts, and she's discovered such a unique way of demonstrating it with great visual impact.  To take her idea one step further, I thought I would take a few of her pairings and match them with music in the same color scheme (at least in my head!).  Hopefully it's a concise way to demonstrate what I love doing here.  So here you go, no explanations, just the images and the music.  Enjoy!

Inspired by Miss Moss's concept, here is a look based on the colors of Rene Magritte's famous painting.  I think finding a purse to correspond with the apple was the most fun!  The look overall is very classy and refined, but the fun mix of sky blue, granny smith green, and fire engine red gives it just the right whimsical touch.
