There’s an awkward cool factor to Bijou Karman‘s illustrated subjects that is undeniably alluring. Elongated figures, exaggerated with disproportionate features like big ears and freckles, are perfectly styled in Gucci, Miu Miu, Marni, Proenza Schouler and other designer wares. They’re so imperfectly chic, you simply wanna know them. Or even be them. And with that badass retro vibe that Bijou so brilliantly injects into her work, you can see why Rihanna recently enlisted her to illustrate her campaign collaboration with Stance Socks.
