F A S H I O N : Peter Lippman for Christian Louboutin 2014

Christian Louboutin X Peter Lippman
Spring Summer 2014

 Flowers, and heels - the most exquisite combination known to woman kind. This combination was picturesquely depicted in the ad launch for Christian Louboutin Spring / Summer 2014, which left jaws dropping around the world.

Louboutin's pastel enameled shoes are a work of art on their own. However, placed casually within impressionist still lifes photographed by the talented, Petere Lippman, these shoes and accessories take on another life of its own.  Lippman successfully executed these compositions through a play on light and color, to achieve an aesthetic quality evident in the works of Van Gogh, Monet, Pissarro, and Cezanne. The diversity and abundance of flowers, as well as the use of sultry hues, creates a magical backdrop to these timeless displays of luxury merchandise.

G R A P H I C S : Ashkan Honarvar "The Dream"

Ashkan Honarvar  X  Electric Society

Ashkan's collection titled "The Dream", is a vibrant collaboration with talented photographer Danil Golovkin for the Electric Society magazine. It perfectly executes a visual integration of exotic flora, feathered appendages, pops of reptile skin, and high fashion. Ashkan elaborates on his artistic mission by stating, "I wanted to create an other worldly effect here using a black background, surreal vegetation, and deformed animal parts that initially look real, but - after some inspection - are revealed to be more surrealistic. As with Rousseau's painting, symbolism is very important here. Every shape can be interpreted differently."

The Dutch artist has an impeccable eye at putting together a puzzle of both similar and contrasting elements into a holistic composition. Of all his exquisite work, I am continually attracted to the haute pieces that embody a unique twist on both fashion and couturesque beauty also seen in my previous post, Graphics .
 It is a pleasure to share to his work as he continues to expand and collaborate with more and more talented designers

An Underwater Collaboration with : 
Photographer Ilse Moore - Art Director/Model Elsa Bleda - Makeup Artist Liezl Zene Oberholzer - Designer Joel Janse van Vuuren 

One thing I can attest to doing absolutely every single day is seek inspiration. Whether its by perusing endlessly on Pinterest, searching for the latest Drake hit, trying out a new hot spot in Miami, or losing myself in the glossy pages of Vogue Italia, inspiration ignites my work and motivation like nothing else. As I meandered through the vast internet resources I bumped into an alluring photograph of a woman enchantingly submerged in dark waters and embraced by a beautiful garment. I then clicked on the link and fell head over heels with the entire collection of fashion motif photographs. The combination of mystery, beauty, entwining focal points, and lustrous hues adds to the success of these images. 

"This underwater shoot captures the essence of the Greek sea nymph legend and explores the beauty and movement of fashion below the surface". -Isle Moore

Here are the collections The Spirit of Galetea, Feline Blush, and Keep Your Eyes on Me. Enjoy.
