Life, Immitation and Art

To quote Oscar Wilde's 1889 essay The Decay of Lying "Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life" This is precisely true with respect to the gentleman photographed below. Unless his shirt has super magical powers, I am sure it was the man who chose to wear the sunglasses that matched the artful tee-shirt rather than the tee-shirt who chose to wear the same sunglasses as the man. However, don't think that clothing can't change its appearance if it wanted to. Designer Hussein Chalayan is known for his transformer dresses, which can change shape, shade and design. Life may imitate Art, but Art takes on a Life of its own!
Please note that these outfits fall under the Copying Couples Category.
I wonder if they know they are dressed the same (see fashionable friends post)
