I absolutely adore Brazilian artist and fashion student Camila do Rosário‘s work. Her Moleskine collages are incredibly inspiring and her detailed illustrations are hauntingly captivating and full of expression. Enjoy the rest of her art here.

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
