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.
Blanket. Coat. Enough said. Clare Waight Keller’s inspiration began with a 1966 archival photo of a Chloé blanket coat and came full circle with a collection of coats, jackets, and ponchoes in double faced wool with thick piping. And the reversible shearling jacket, trimmed with pops of rust orange?! Polar vortex proof, no doubt.
They say dogs resemble their owners . . . or is it that dog owners resemble their pets? With a bit of Photoshop trickery, Swiss photographer Sebastian Magnani brings light to this observation by splicing together canine faces onto their owners’ bodies. You’ve got to check out the side by side comparisons HERE. It’s genius!
It’s only the beginning of January but I’m ready for summer to arrive just so I can fill my wardrobe with just about every piece from Tibi‘s pre-fall collection. Honestly, Amy Smilovic has knocked it out of the park with coats for each day of week, black ankle cropped pants that will certainly be closet staples, and everyone’s favorite full skirt in powder pink and blue. And as if slip on loafers worn with black and white striped athletic socks and large fringed plaid scarves weren’t desirable enough, her sick collaboration with milliner Federica Moretti has our heads spinning.
