Orla Kiely Winter 2012

Winter 2012 is over in the Southern hemisphere so I really should focus on how happy I am to feel the weather getting warmer, but then I see these cute black retro silhouette type looks from Orla Kielly's Winter collection and I start hankering for black tunics, coats and three quarter sleeves, which is crazy. Also crazy is talking and blogging fashion when I've got so much art work to complete in so little time. Truth is I'm not having much 'luck'. I'm working when I can but not making enough progress, technique is at times eluding me and another trip to the hospital on Monday looms threatening to wipe out another week. The ever understanding teaching staff are happy for me to delay my assessment but that means missing the graduation exhibition which to me is kind of the whole point...
So no light as such at the end of the tunnel as yet but I'm not giving up on the exhibition until I absolutely have no choice. Next post I aim to start putting up some of my work in progress. With emphasis on the word progess.

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.
