Quote of the day: Vivienne Westwood – London Fashion Week SS14

 Invest in the world! Inspiring words that have to do with a fresher and newer perspective: Go out, connect and explore your full talents! Don’t waste your time with silly insecurities and do something for others too. Think about the environment and nature.

Cool T-Shirt #1=Marni by Romina Quirós

Why? Because it’s one of those nowadays popular collaborations between a big house and an independent artist. Because the artist is from Argentina (is nice to see some variation, so many countries in the world to explore talent!), because the artist is attentive to environmental issues and (0f course)because it’s a pretty design. If you […]

Planet Palmer @ The Box

In a very creative collaboration, six Spanish (women) designers decided to join forces and inaugurate a very recommendable Pop-up store in Barcelona. The story goes a bit like this: 3 designers ( Nerea Lurgain, Elena Gallego & Olga Prat) decided a year ago to open a store where not only they could  sell their brand’s clothes (called […]

Raf Simons / Dries Van Noten

This week I was really inspired by the work of two of my favourite designers, Raf Simons and Dries Van Noten and so I did two quick sketches inspired by them. Simons silhouettes were surprisingly feminine but somehowyou don’t care so much about it when you see them, because they look fresh, young and new. […]

Fashionary

Creativity is always an ongoing process, that sometimes needs a tad bit of help. That was the starting point for the last post I did for the Absolut Mode Society website that talks about tools to boost our creative talents. One of them was Fashionary, a tailor-made sketchbook not only for fashion designers, but bloggers, styling artists and fashionistas who use it […]

Color!

Just a bit of colour to spice up the week with a lovely skirt by La Casita de Wendy (the vibrant print by Ana Sender)

Royal Caballito

This brand new brand, Royal Caballito, is the brainchild of Diana Saldaña, a photo curator and art historian turned designer from Madrid. The designs are simple, and the prints are the protagonists of these made to order garments. The beautiful pictures are by Chus Anton. … Esta nueva marca, Royal Caballito, es la creación de Diana Saldaña, […]

SuTurno – Pañuelos

Why stand the rain when you can wear the rain? That seems to be the starting point for this new series of printed scarfs by Spanish brand SuTurno. Their irregular and slightly “imperfect” motifs reveal the designer’s hand and it’s what makes them especially personal. The “Lluvia” and I”nútiles” scarf collection are available here. … Por qué […]

Illustrated highlights of beauty ads from Guerlain

Since we started the year with drawn fashion, why not talk about a bit more about the importance of illustration, for example, in beauty advertising! Illustration, cosmetics and perfume were a tandem that went hand in hand until not so long ago. If we take a peek into the archives of emblematic brands we can find a rich […]
