Crystal Clear

This season Dries Van Noten sent nine of his models down the runway with ears encrusted with irregularly shaped pieces of crystals. Make up artist Peter Philips adhered the crystals with glue and placed each and every one by hand with tweezers, making a makeshift earcuff. The idea came from the big necklaces and larger than life brooches from the show. I want to try a smaller version myself and wonder if my favorite double sided tape will do the trick?

Ink, Tea & Alcohol

Working primarily with calligraphy ink and liquids like tea, brandy and whisky, Carne Griffiths draws both human and floral forms in the most unique and abstract way. “Alcohol has a curious effect on ink, taking the colour deep into the paper very quickly – it behaves very differently to water and gives permanence to some inks” explains Carne.
