We have such a huge appreciation for artists who surprise us by unexpectedly transforming ordinary and mundane objects into impressive works of art. Photographer Suzanne Jongmans‘ higher calling involves transforming discarded packing foam and recycled insulation materials into dramatic costumes inspired by 16th and 17th century Flemish and Dutch paintings. Merging elements from the past and present, Jongman has effectively changed our perception of waste. And the results are simply striking.
If only we posessed magical powers that allowed us to simply blink and be transported to any destination of our choosing. In a perfect world, I’d like to spend the rest of my week at Anantara Kihavah Villas, sipping cocktails on soft white beaches and taking dips into the crystal clear waters of the Maldives . . .
Whether it be shibori or with bleach, warm weather brings out our utmost desire for tie dying – especially when it comes to bleaching as working outdoors for this project is a necessity. Inspired by Isabel Marant‘s tie dyed sweatshirts, shirts and jeans, we grabbed our favorite denim shirt and a bottle of Clorox for one of our favorite summertime projects.
