Welcome to a New Year! Are you ready to start 2019 off with some great fashion finds? We have some ideas to help you show your artistic style. Inside the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) is filled with many art finds. Not only will you discover an amazing permanent collection of art and the best special exhibits, but it is a beautiful place to pick out the perfect fashions and fashion accessories to make your outfit a masterpiece at the museum store. If you are not in the local area and would like to shop online, no problem, the DIA has an online store stocked as well!

Every Great Closet Needs a Wide Assortment of Scarves.



Whether you are dressing for success or dressing up jeans and a tee, a scarf is a perfect accessory. You will find today’s fabrics soft and wrinkle-resistant, which makes them great for travel or to keep in your bag or car. At the DIA gift shop, there is a large assortment of scarf prints that are inspired by various artists’ works of art. Here are a few scarves that caught our eye:

M. C. Escher (1898–1972) was a Dutch graphic artist who became world famous through his interest in the unusual, which he brought to life in his prints. His repetitive graphic designs make for an eye-catching addition to your fashion accessory collection with a Blue and gold, silk twill scarf for $79.95. For $39.95, you can choose the Monet’s Poppy Field scarf. This would make a great gift for art lovers, and fans of Impressionism. Also for $39.95, the DIA has an assortment of scarves from artists Van Gogh, Klimt, and various other prints.


Handbags with Style

The bag has a fully lined interior with zip top closure to keep everything secure. Made of vegan leather, the handbag will help you easily stay organized all year with an inner zip pocket and two slip pockets for storage. No more fuss over losing your keys, phone, and wallet!

This exhibit honors Detroit’s history of industry, modernization and the DIA’s vast permanent collection.  The husband and wife artistic team, Ruben and Isabel, created a series of new works interspersed across numerous collection galleries.
