Inspiration comes in many forms and from many sources. This spring, American painter Frank Stella serves as an unofficial muse. A master of minimalist, the artist's famously cryptic quote, "What you see is what you see," was printed in designer Tim Hamilton's spring show notes, and his signature stripes have zig-zagged into pieces both big and small. Stella's approach to abstract art was easy—meant to be enjoyed and not thought about too much. That's the kind of simplicity to keep in mind when you're getting dressed.
