IF KARL LAGERFELD HAD AN ALTER EGO....

It would certainly be a Santa Pug....

Better hope you make it on the 'Nice' List because this year Santa Lagerfeld Pug is taking over, and he is ready to drop down the chimney in style and scatter Chanel and Fendi goodies all under your Christmas tree. 

P.S. Leave behind some dog treats and milk- Highly recommended. 

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

F L O W E R S & H E E E L S 
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"


T H E  D R E AM 
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

Enjoy.
