THIS WEEK we were inspired by over the top embellishing on clothes and around our eyes. Looking forward into the future with an amazing runway and back into the past at iconic style. We were also caught off guard by an amazing artist who explores some deep problems in brightly colored paintings. Keep on sparkling little messy heads.
1. Ashish Spring 2016 Runway
Sequins, nip slips, embellished denim, sheer fabric, a beautifully diverse array of models, and skateboarding.. pretty much sums up to the best runway ever. Ashish Gupta was inspired by a pile of sequins scattered haphazardly atop a bench. “I thought they just looked beautiful,” the designer said. So, he thought, why try and impose order when disorder looks so great?
This was a show in which the overwhelming message was its rejection of categories through inclusion: Because we’re all just little sparkles, jumbled together. (via Vogue)
2. Embellished Bras
Ashish’s embellished runway had us thinking… If you have to wear a bra, might as well make it sparkle.
BadGal Riri is always a favorite of ours because of how effortless & badass she is. The article by the Fader completely nailed the Rihanna persona and the photos they got of her were just as encapsulating.
For Love and Lemons always kills it with their collection shoots. The latest seemed wrapped up in a story of a princess dwelling in a lavish estate. Crowns, velvet, embroidery, and intricate fabrics.
5. Mod Doe Eyes
The sixties were all about emphasizing the eyes with huge lashes and contouring, but we are loving these images where eyes become an art piece. Painted daisies, actual flower petals, tiny details.. we are getting inspired for some halloween costumes!
6. Jimi Hendrix
Ellyn explores speciesism in her vibrant work, makes you stop and think about our perceptions of food and animals.
