Erik Madigan Heck has captured the essence and brilliance of Mary Katrantzou‘s Fall 2011 collection in this stunning editorial for Nomenus Quarterly and A Magazine. Inspired by interior paintings of the late 19th century French painters Pierre Bonnard and Edouard Vuillard, Heck blurs the lines between fashion photography and fine art, flattening the space between photography and illustration. The images are colorfully piercing, dramatic and oh so dreamy.
You probably have guessed by now that we have a major soft spot for almost all things western . . . bolos, cowboy boots and the like. So when Balenciaga incorporated a modern take on western collar tips into their Spring 2011 Collection, we were beyond thrilled. Who knew these little metal tips are capable of brightening up any button up shirt?! With a pair of inexpensive decorative brass corners from the hardware store, we made our own Balenciaga-inspired collar tips that are to DIY for.You’ll need:
– 2 brass decorative corners - 2 clutch pin backs – 2 pieces of thick fabric scrap (i.e. felt or wool)
– cutting pliers
– super glue
It’s only Monday and I’m already daydreaming about this country-meets-urban NYC rooftop apartment. It is absolute perfection with the colors, rustic outdoor living spaces, transparent rooms and foliage galore. This reminds me a bit of the greenhouse apartment in Greencard, no?
San Francisco artist Sarah Applebaum‘s installations and sculptures, made from afghans, vintage blankets, felt, and yarn, are so colorfully explosive and psychedelically brilliant.
