Let's spatter some colours.


I always find mixing two of my hobbies particularly appealing when represented in a form of fashion illustration. Paris Haute Couture left a big mark on me, so I took on watercolours, paper and pencil to make the impression of Armani Prive collection go to reality. Also I suspect I'm not the only one allured by the japanese leitmotif. Giorgio Armani remained completely faithful to the East, but lets moving on from the collection to the canvas. Honestly speaking, it is not the final piece (and hope I will find some strength to push the matter through) but I could hardly wait to share it with you guys :)





 Another work inspired by Dior Fall 2011 that has stuck in my folder for a few months. I remember oceans of tulle and bouffant satin, as well as lingerie dresses that undescore a shot of killing charm. Consequently, my aim was not to go beyond the sensuality of feminine and the choice of whity-pink was obvious. However, that mossy splash makes the whole vision of that illustration more legible. The portraits of 19th century( the epoch of Lord Byron), ment to be one of the influences for the Dior wizards and particularly for me.




 And a couple of extra  drawings. Don't try to see the aesthetics or art value in these works. I'm an amateur so I'm allowed to make any metamorphosis and transformations with some techniques and mediums :D




New issue of British Vogue on my coffee table make sitting alone at home much more pleasant to me.

Paris Flora and Fauna

Lets indulge ourselves in a portly walk down the street of the current hot point on the horizon of fashion. The entire fashion week, starting from the backstage or front row and finishing with an open air, is a full and highly concentrated cocktail of style, beauty and eccentric. The cream of Big League, the golden beau monde, messing around the city, taken all round seem like a miraculously charming and wild at the same time jungle with its  finest pieces of flora and fauna. In addition, importunate flashes of the photocamera is all around you, well hell yes, you better be careful. Once you put the Givenchy dress on you with a fabulous pair of shoes from the Pierre Hardy, take a snakeskin handbag from Chloe and spice it with a daisy fluffy tressed on the one side hairdo and voila, you will be straight away spotted by the score of onlookers, reporters and amateur photographers. Surely, everyone wants to know what is Anna Dello Russo or Daphne Guinness going to wear on the certain fashion show or how will Karlie Kloss look top-to-toe after another exhausting catwalk. Looking at the Paris rush hours comprising Paris Haute Couture and Paris Spring 2012 Menswear, mixing some other street looks, I would rather share my favourites with you guys, so enjoy the wild life of tameless street glory.



Anja Rubik opting out of society is a gothic perfection. No colour in here, but there is no doubt lace spliced with chiffon shine brighter than any dress on that street.




Jackson Pollock take on a contremporary spin with fluoro picasso-worthy contrast. Elena Perminova absolutely rocked it with triangle necklace.


I'm still fallen for the whole west thing in terms of tribal prints etc. Indeed I want this backpack!




God, can anyone tell me who the hell is she? Impeccable appereance. Love.


Olivia Palmero and Johannes Huebl are in principle meant to be a good combo.


 

P.S. mark my words but if I would have not a glorious time with a camera in my pocket, I will be shooting all Anna's and Freja's on the street like Tommy Ton :D

Black and gold


 That what happens when two different worlds collide. A week ago I've met this girl full of charm and talent. Julia Golden, who bravely took a few shots of me is not only a big treasure in terms of a good professional photography, but also an enthusiastic and extraordinary person. The central park that is one of the most iconic places of the summer is not necessarily the only location of shooting, unless you want to add some fresh breeze of the leaves. Sleeky chic elegance, with its secret romantique, outlined with a few flowers in my hair and a new beidge bag, which I've bought a couple of days ago.
I really hope that it's not the last collaboration of me and Julia. Here you can check out her blog and I will see you in the nearest future with some other stuff, besides my daily feed. :)

Tribute


Well, have you ever had a chance of visiting Riga(Latvia) in terms of a healthy shopping? Every single native local person will say that you will not going to be crowned with success, because I'm afraid, there are no more good shops than in an average small english town. However, the small bright light is showing up on the temple of high street fashion. Occasional visit of this place, due to absence in my rural place of residence, turns every single purchase into the event of the day. Sounds so silly, but you can blame it on the lack of really good shops. :D I love Zara for keeping up with anything that go straight from the runway into your must-have list. You don't even need to go beyond your budget. Citrus prints by Stella McCartney, wide shirts and longslivs, trousers with arrows from Celine or starry variations form the Dolce and Gabbana Fall 2011? You get to choose. With an assertive walk, I went there a few days ago and guess what, I found this gorgeous handbag. Also there are some photos with quite sunny refreshing look with long-time craving combination of beidge and lemon. Hope you like it and try to keep the summer sun in your mind even if there is something lousy in your life at the moment. Peace :)
