Mayfair, London’s most attractive villages, was the inspiration behind creative director Blue Farrier’s first collection for Issa. The clothing included a silk pajama suit, a paisley jacquard bomber jacket, jersey wrap dresses, high waisted trousers, and silk blouses with clusters of gems at the neck. Most of the collection was dominated by black and cream with highlights of emerald green, the prettiest rusty orange, and gold lurex. Clean and oh so ladylike.
I love it when artists bring life and texture to two dimensional photos and drawings by way of embroidery. In his latest series Newserie, Chilean artist Jose Romussi embroiders flowers and geometric doodles over pages of fashion editorials. Look closely at this first piece with the white flowers – you’ll notice he created strands of hair and tiny braids with thin, wispy threads. So breathtaking. If you like his work, you’ll have to check out his Dance series, where ballerinas get the colorful, threaded treatment.
