Curated.Works: Taste of Fashion (Part 1)

For this F/W 2014 season, I have decided to invite 2 illustrators to work on 2 separate mini projects. Each project involves 2 different collections with similar idea. For the first one, Simone Antonello is my collaborator and the brands are Chanel and Moschino.

As you may remember, the theme for these 2 collections are at some point related to the food sector. In this case, I asked Simone to create 3 illustrations and have the characters interacting with each other to create a simple story. Below is the first piece.

In here, the Moschino girl has transformed into the “fast food” girl and instead of food, she is selling her handbag to the Chanel girl. I like the concept of this illustration because the handbag reminds me of the Chanel 2.55 bag, so the transition from the left to right is actually pretty interesting. The fast food menu adds a nice touch to the illustration.

Curated.Works: From Runway To Sketch: Milan F/W 2014 – Day 1 by Domenico Cordua

“I want to make art that goes unnoticed, a wound that appears like a scrape” – D.Cordua

For this F/W 2014 Milan Fashion Week, I have invited Domenico Cordua to pick some of his favourite collections and illustrate one look from each of them. Instead of me giving comments on each piece, I have decided to let him tell us his feelings about each look/ collection.

“Nice harmony. Somehow there is a balance between the geometric shapes and colour. The skirt is a cubist psychedelic mix and it will be prefect for an 80’s night.”
