Alexsandro Palombo Gives Business Icons a Lavish Makeover

Taking the most minimalist of the tech industry, Milano-based artist aleXsandro Palombo lavishly garnishes business icons Tim Cook and Paul Deneve and their company logo. The CEO and new Vice President of Apple Inc. are spotted wearing black or shades of gray, most often than not. In this series of images, titled 'Happy Apple fashion line,' the two execs rock red and black two-toned blazers.

Apple Inc. is known for its minimalistic product designs -- its sleek and modern electronics are the furthest thing from gaudy. Palombo takes the company's colorless logo and adorns it with classic prints from fashion houses like Burberry, Chanel, Gucci and Louis Vuitton. The artist completely revamps the company's image into something it isn't, which is what makes the caricatures all the more ironic, intriguing and entertaining. Though this collaboration may seem obscure, it makes sense since Deneve was once the CEO of Yves Saint Laurent. Stats for Fashion-Infused Business Caricatures Trending: Older & Warm
