Evocative Imagery

kenny4

There were many images from the previous post that we meant to share, but couldn’t because then it’d drive you guys insane. We decided to separate the posts so we could share some evocative imagery that inspired us to create the previous design. There were so many forms we looked at before we went ahead […]

Helmut Campaign

21

Ok, one thing.. I don’t like fashion campaigns. They seem way too saturated (in color) but also a bit outdated…they look cartoonish in my eyes, especially when the models are airbrushed so much. I don’t get why the marketing is the same, when I see a Cavalli ad I cringe a little and wonder..does someone […]

Red Blue Stripes

(Outfit: Leather striped top from Luxirare, Leather pants from Luxirare, and model’s own black converses), photos by Julia Chesky Yesterday I prayed Jefimija wasn’t so thin that these leather pants would end up being too loose- it would look so weird to safety pin or clip anything, only had 1 sample that fit me pretty […]

Helmut Lang

Untitled-2

Inspired by Helmut Lang (late 80′s to 90′s runways referenced below..I think) right now. Everything looks fresh, still. Nice little article by nytimes here. Loving: The leather trim on the mock neck shirt/turtleneck in the first picture The lack of accessories or purses The cigarette box/wristlet purse thing with the …

“research”

versace92

Most of you already know how much I love old Versace. I’ve posted about his designs a long while ago..There is nothing intellectual about his work, just genuinely gratuitous…in the best way possible. Far from Raf Simons’ work anyway (another designer I admire). I feel like Carla Bruni + Versace is the equivalent of …

Face Mask

isabel-toledo-mask

Image scanned from Isabel Toledo: Fashion from the Inside Out, can’t stress enough how great this book is, and that she is literally the modern day Vionnet. Though she’s completely out-shined by the male designer pack, after she dies (not for a long long time though) she’ll be a legend.

Setareh.Mohtarez.8

I’ve seen a couple of these designs float around tumblrs..As it usually is with tumblrs, very rarely do you get to see who the designs are by, just a link from what blog they came. Setareh worked with an extremely simple galaxy/floral concept that I’m loving. **If you are going to use these images …

I don’t know how to justify posting random images, I have visceral reactions to images and if it catches my attention I immediately want to post about it. This imagefeed section is another storage section for me, kind of like my desktop, where I can just throw in images that I can eventually get inspired […]

Isabel Toledo

isabel-toledo-dress

This looks like satin with wood grain printed on but I’m not the best when it comes to deciphering fabrics from pictures. I love the turned out seams and the raw finishing here, and the construction looks beyond impeccable. Scanned from Isabel Toledo: Fashion from the Inside Out by Valerie Steele and Patricia Mears. Its […]

Illustrations

Christian Lacroix on Fashion I’ve seen a ton of fashion illustrations but my favorite fashion illustrator would have to be Christian Lacroix. These drawings were done in photoshop/illustrator or some kind of digital medium. Fashion illustration by Fashion designers Next to Lacroix, another favorite would be drawings by Aitor Throup. Which one do you guys […]
