Bag No. 3.

Here is the third bag in my learn to use a sewingmachine exercise. Have mixed feelings on this one. The little red wool top on white linen was the very first thing I did with the machine and as such took a long time to work into a bigger design I felt okay about. Tried out lots of different things but the little bits of text on fabric seemed the best way to balance out all the red and black. Also tucked some text away in the red lining. Its a dictionary description for the word authentic - because I believe little pictures of outfits and their accessories should be authentic............or rather that was the only text fabric available to me (really with text being so popular in design lately you would think there would be more choice wouldn't you?). Anyway cute is still good right?

Comic Book Heroines for Prada Spring 2018.

While 1960s comic book heroines featured on bags, coats, cardigans, shirts and dresses for Prada's Spring 2018 collection there's a kind of 1980s subtext here too. With the PRADA font, the colour palette - lots of bright red and electric blue — plus those silhouettes. It's hard then not to think of a 1980s night club when I see this collection — the underground print press with screen printed posters  and thus a little bit of punk too. All very pre-Madonna. Yay Prada!

Studio Space - Jodie Cunningham.

I love images from artist studios and the spaces where they work. This is the amazing studio and gorgeous work of artist Jodie Cunningham. Jodie works in so many different mediums — often recycled materials and always with attention to colour. If you love colour this space is particularly divine.

Tim Walker's Egon Schiele inspired editorial for i-D magazine.

Tim Walker's recent work for i-D magazine is recognisable instantly for its source inspiration, artist Egon Schiele. Along with stylist Jakob J they do a gorgeous job recreating Schiele's bright, but sparingly used palette and the postures his models struck. Brilliantly cast too are the models, particularly Schiele's wife and model, Edith Harms.
