Jeff Koons-à-Porter

And now, in the Venn diagram of art and fashion, the hottest item at the middle of it all is one from H&M by...Jeff Koons.

Yes, the iconic American artist not only has a hot retrospective at New York City’s Whitney Museum going on these days (through Oct. 19), he’s also had a limited-edition leather cross-body bag – featuring his multimillion-dollar golden Balloon Dog! – flying off the shelves at the retailer’s new flagship store on Fifth Avenue and at select H&M stores across the United States.

Art for everybody! Much to the chagrin of whomever bought the actual sculpture that inspired the bag, perhaps?
