WEDNESDAY ILLUSTRATION:Chanel Pre-fall 2013


Today's illustration is inspired by Chanel Pre-fall 2013 collection.
I love this pre-fall collection designed by Karl Lagerfeld! He merged Chanel's original Parisian proportions with the romantic Scottish tradition. Every element from this collection, the braided up do hairstyle, feathered hats, flowing scarves, patterned tights, kilt in chiffon and lace, drop-waisted kilt-pleated coat, jewels and feather accessories is so beautifully designed and matched.

WEDNESDAY ILLUSTRATION:Dsquared² SPRING 2013 RTW


Today's illustration is inspired by Dsquared² SS 2013 RTW collection. This is one of my favorite collections from this season! I love how confident and cool the Dsquared² girls look.
This season, DSquared2's collection was an ode to the nineties.
This collection features fitted leather jackets, biker hats, ruffled hemmed tops, and monochrome micro minis. The outfits were then adorned with gold chains and pearls, bondage straps with hearts, and other fun details.The looks are very appealing and practical at the same time.

WEDNESDAY ILLUSTRATION:CHRISTIAN DIOR SPRING 2013 RTW


Today's illustration is inspired by Christian Dior SS 2013 RTW collection. 
"According to the show notes—and Raf's own words—the key descriptor for this new era at Dior is "freedom." But freedom from all restraint ultimately leads to the excess of self-destruction. What we saw today, by contrast, suggested an appreciation of the power of limits."--style.com
I especially love the iridescent balloon floral-printed skirts and those shiny stilettos!

WEDNESDAY ILLUSTRATION:ISSA SPRING 2013 RTW



Today's illustration is inspired by Issa Spring Summer RTW collection. I especially love the beautiful prints and bright color palette from this collection! Very delightful! 
" 'Goddess.' Daniella Helayel was unequivocal in her description of the woman who inspired her new collection. With Malcolm Edwards' orchid-wrapped hairstyles and Val Garland's glossy-lipped maquillage offering sterling support, Helayel's female deity could have slithered straight off one of those Roxy Music covers that defined sophisticated womanly allure in the seventies."-Style.com

I have always been intrigued by flower meanings and symbolism. After I finished the painting, I was wondering about the meaning of orchid flowers. After a brief research, I found out orchid flower represents innocence, love, luxury, delicate beauty and strength...Ah, so beautiful! 
If you have been following my blog, you know I can't get tired from painting stylish girls, enjoy drawing flowers, LOVE painting them together even more. Every flower is very unique in its own way, just like people. After I painted some floral portraits, I always associate the girls/women I meet with different kinds of flowers. 
Just think how intriguing and elegant would a girl be if she embodies the lovely qualities of orchid flowers...

WEDNESDAY ILLUSTRATION:BALMAIN SPRING 2013 RTW




Today's illustration is inspired by Balmain Spring Summer 2013 RTW collection. 
Many of the cuts of the clothing referenced the early 1990's, ranging from sleeveless crop tops, to mini skirts, shoulder pads, and men's trousers. The silhouette included a fuller high-waisted pant, an exaggerated shoulder, and a focus on the midriff and legs.
I especially love the architectural silhouettes of the outfits and geometric patterns used throughout this collection!

WEDNESDAY ILLUSTRATION: HONOR SPRING 2013 RTW | MIERCOLES ILUSTRACIÓN



Today's illustration is inspired by Honor Spring Summer 2013 RTW collection. 
After giving birth to her first child earlier this summer, Giovanna Randall, Honor's designer, was thinking about the phenomenon of the human anatomy and the "contrast between natural and synthetic worlds," she explained backstage. Her new Spring collection seamlessly fused subtle references to the body with Honor's feminine aesthetic. 
The floral patterns quietly filled the fabric surface, very subtle and poetic. The soft color palette and flowing silhouette make this collection look so elegant and feminine.

WEDNESDAY ILLUSTRATION: MOSCHINO SPRING 2013 RTW | MIERCOLES ILUSTRACIÓN




Today's illustration is inspired by Moschino SS 2013 RTW collection. The whole collection is very delightful and optimistic.
The designer was inspired by fashion trends from the 1960s. "I was inspired by Sharon Stone in Casino and another film I love, Two for the Road," said Jardini after the show. "Colour played a vital role alongside our black and white, but I used these in different proportions this time, shorter and for the first time we used silver not gold."
For hair and makeup, the brand referenced Ginger Rothstein, Sharon Stone's doomed character in Casino. I love the red lips, white eyeliner with long lashes combination for the make up. The look is very bold and classic.

Para el cabello y el maquillaje, la marca de referencia Ginger Rothstein, personaje condenado Sharon Stone en Casino. Me encantan los labios rojos, delineador de ojos negro con largas pestañas combinación para el maquillaje. El aspecto es muy llamativo y clásico.

✿MISS PRADA✿

WEDNESDAY ILLUSTRATION:PRADA SPRING 2013 RTW | MIERCOLES ILUSTRACIÓN‏




Today's illustration is inspired by Prada Spring 2013 RTW collection. I especially like the glasses with floral decorations from this collection.
"Dream is forbidden, nostalgia is forbidden, to be too sweet is not good. Everything we used to feel historically, now you can't enjoy. The clothes are the expression of this impossible dream." Miuccia Prada was talking about sentiment and feeling—both our yearnings for a more innocent state and the futility of those yearnings. 
This season, Prada embraced traditional tropes of femininity and womanhood. The clothes are very poetic and elegant. The main color palette is a simple red, black and white combination. Very bold and classic. 

Check out the whole collection here.

"El sueño está prohibido, nostalgia está prohibido, a ser demasiado dulce no es bueno. Todo lo que solía sentir históricamente, ahora no se puede disfrutar. Las ropas son la expresión de un sueño imposible". Miuccia Prada se refería en el sentimiento y la sensación-tanto nuestros anhelos para un estado más inocente y la inutilidad de esos anhelos.
Esta temporada, Prada abrazado tropos tradicionales de la feminidad y la feminidad. La ropa es muy poética y elegante. La paleta de color principal es una simple combinación rojo, negro y blanco. Muy llamativo y clásico.

WEDNESDAY ILLUSTRATION: YVES SAINT LAURENT SPRING 2013 RTW | MIERCOLES ILUSTRACIÓN‏


Today's illustration is inspired by Saint Laurent Spring 2013 RTW collection. Hedi Slimane was heavily influenced by the brand's 70s archives, which inspired him designing this season's collection that consists of wide-brimmed hats, skinny, skinny pants, immaculately tailored short jackets, and billowy, chiffon dresses.
It also felt like the mood of the collection was dictated by Slimane's stay in L.A. The girls on Slimane's catwalk look like Los Angeles woman. Everything from this collection looks very chic, beautiful and elegant!
