Still life-inspired designs are taking a fresh and modern twist in both art and fashion.

Still life is an art form that originated in Middle Ages and Ancient Greek/Roman. It is a work of art, traditionally in the form of painting, that uses various inanimate objects assembled on still settings art subjects.

Each object usually contains symbolic meaning which, combined with the arrangement and the hues used, communicate a message to the audience as a whole.

Still life depictions in our day of age take a more relatable approach to the 21st century people while still referencing the traditional settings. We have covered numerous accessory and shoe editorials on Trend Hunter that used such painting-inspired arrangements within their styling.

Listed are creations that range from such editorials to redefined still life works with varying modern twists.
