Paintbrush Portraits is an ongoing project by Rebecca Szeto. The San Francisco based artist has been whittling down old, discarded paintbrushes and sculpting the handles into figures since 1999. Inspired by women of the Renaissance period and Diego Velázquez’s Las Menina, Rebecca is transforming trash into treasures.
Erdem Moralioglu‘s signature play on lattice work, embroidered jacquard, floral prints, and delicate lace underwent a preppy, 60s nautical treatment with pea coats, Breton striped sweaters, chunky Aran knits, sailor pants and boyish brogues. Ladylike elegance and boyish preppy-ness collided so perfectly and once again, we’re wrapped up in Erdem’s world . . .
Singapore based photographer James Bent has spent the last few years chronicling what real people are wearing across the Asian continent. His new book, Asian Street Fashion, is a visual journey through Taipei, Bangkok, Seoul, Tokyo and Hong Kong and his array of styles of his subjects are refreshingly original and free from Western trends. Inspiring!
