Holiday snaps

The title is pretty self-explanatory :P Last week I spent on the beautiful spanish island Menorca. The week consisted of plenty of sunbathing, dips in the pool, food, cocktails, being all touristy in pretty cities and going for evening strolls along the harbour and beach. (and the last night was spent watching 'Finding Nemo' in spanish! hahaa)

Staring at the sink of blood and crushed veneer

ABOVE: Flat drawings and illustrations created on Illustrator and Photoshop (plus images from 'The Virgin Suicides' and 'The Secret Garden' Book cover) , using the prints I design during my internship at Mirjam Rouden. I love the trend of excessive drapy-ness (if that is a word..) lightweight, transparent fabrics with feminine prints to create a floaty, care-free look. My favourite key pieces for s/s 12 are the waterfall skirt and loose-fitting blouses/shirts. Zara, Miss Selfridge, River Island & Internacional all have do gorgeous versions of these.

paint it black

ABOVE: Grunge moodboard.(consisting of my own illustrations)
I love the style of model Freja Beha Erichsen. Possible influences could have been Mick Jagger and Patti Smith, I love the waterfall, heavily draped shapes, distressed and ripped denim, tough, edgy and raw-ness of the look.
