Google AutoDraw, the tech giant’s latest artificial intelligence tool, has taken Pictionary to a whole new level.


Using machine learning, paired with drawings from featured artists, AutoDraw enables everyone to become a creative. The only thing that could make this tool cooler? Collaboration with these legendary fashion designers.

Karl Lagerfeld

Head designer and creative director to Chanel, Fendi and his eponymous label, Lagerfeld once produced fashion sketches coloured by Shu Uemura eye shadows. Meet his cat Choupette, whom he sketches with Shu Uemura cosmetics:

His love for sketching is also evident in his recent collaboration with Faber-Castell. The limited edition Karl Box includes 350 pencils, markers and pastels.

Alessandro Michele

Gucci creative director Michele draws on graphics as inspiration for his work channelling pop art and mythical archetypes. How we wish our random doodles could be reinterpreted through his phantasmagoric pen.

Dries van Noten

We would love to see Van Noten’s unique prints and motifs on AutoDraw. The Belgian designer, who’s just celebrated his 100th fashion show, featured a rainbow of kaleidoscopic patterns during his tenure.

Yves Saint Laurent

The late couturier is known for his reinterpretation of classic artistic works – such as the iconic Mondrian dress.

Saint Laurent fed his passion for fashion from an early age by drawing clothes for paper dolls. Some of the sketches are still well-preserved at Musee YSL.

Alexander McQueen

The late designer has been a pioneer when it comes to integrating tech and fashion – think the robotic paint arms he used in his 1999 ready to wear show.

The McQueen drawings showcased at the Savage Beauty exhibition in London and New York could be an awesome addition to the AutoDraw library.
