Office Overperformance: Rob Prideaux

Don’t you wish that one day when you get to work, your office supplies would start doing your work for you. Well that’s one great idea, but there’s also super supplies that help you do your work more efficient & that’s what Rob Prideaux, San Francisco product photographer, wants to illustrate for us.

With an eraser times three and a high speed oscillating motion highlighter stand that does the job with a push of a finger, you can analyze a report or three within minutes and maybe even stay late to finish a year worth of work.

Exhibition: Graffiti & Fashion

Graffiti & Fashion what an exciting mix. So many things come to mind: colors, paint splatters & dynamic compositions in an urban environment. Orly Ruaimi, however, brings new visuals to this concept. In her exhibition on December 5, 2013 in a San Francisco gallery, she is showing her latest selection of jewelry, yes I said jewelry, along with her abstract paintings that she translates into jewelry design.

Shoe Contortionist: Kristina Lewis

At first glance, the skeletal structures sculpted by Kristina Lewis, the San Francisco-based artist, look nothing more than mysteriously mirrored shapes. When you look again, you start to notice buckles, straps and insoles, and start to make out ladies’ favorite fashion item – shoes. Cut, twisted, glued are a pair of heels which are contorted into eco-sculptures.

If you are holding on to a pair if heels which you know you will never ever wear, maybe you should give Kristina a ring. She will find a great use to your neglected pair.

Halloween-ing

When I think of Halloween, I don’t think of baring costumes everyone is standing in line to buy at a local Spirit Store, I think of dark bone yards, seeping moonlight, deep shadows and moody photographs.

Print Paradise: Mary Katrantzou

London is full of creative energy, especially, in fashion. Let’s take a closer look at a designer undeniably mastering the art of using prints in a fresh innovative way, Mary Katrantzou. The placement of the prints is immaculate and each season it’s a new themed spectacle. Her fan-base is of all ages, shapes & sizes and the niche she is exploring is only bringing a larger audience.

This is her most popular look for the 2014 Spring season:

The storyline for the collection is SHOES – girls’s most prized possession.

Mary_Matrantzou_Spring_2014_RTW_Collection_amazing_print_designer_LondonMary_Matrantzou_Spring_2014_RTW_Collection_amazing_print_designer_London 2

One of my favorite collections up to date is Spring 2011. Mary Katrantzou used interior design as an inspiration to this line. The models  were wearing trompe l’oeil images of rooms with chandelier necklaces & fabric extensions serving as curtains.

For this Fall/Winter season, there was a heavily-discussed diversion that everyone saw in Katrantzou’s style. It’s much darker and sultry than her previous collections.

However, you can hear Mary Katrantzou’s defense and explanation of the collection in this interview. She doesn’t think there’s a diversion and this collection is still very much HER in the aesthetic sense. She talks about her Fall 2013 RTW Collection and touches quiet a bit on inspiration, design process and industry secrets  in a very welcoming & candid manner.

Her designs are definitely dominating my Prints Pinterest board. I might even have to edit some out!
