Leslie David for Lancome

In honor of Lancome’s 80th anniversary, designer, Leslie David, was asked to create a series of stickers to customize selfies and other photos. Using make-up and nail polish, David crafted marble-like blobs in feminine shades like coral, rose, and dusty pink mixed with hints of metallic gold. This technique looks like a lot of fun and reminds me of melting crayons over the radiator as a kid. Did anyone else do this?

Interesting geo stories are emerging on the Resort runways with lots of black and white and some 60’s inspired modern prints. The most enthralling so far has been Chanel’s show which took place in Seoul. Prints were inspired by the bright colors of modern Seoul, as well as the Korean patchwork technique called pojagi. This type of patchwork is used on wrapping cloth which covers everything from stored clothing to presents. I am feeling inspired by the unconventional quilting configurations here and look forward to incorporating these compositions in my next print collection. What do you think?

Erin Smith of Ship & Shape

I’m always on the hunt for cute planters and was pleased to stumble upon the creations of ceramicist, Erin Smith. As one of the founders of Ship & Shape, an online boutique of handcrafted goods, Erin makes ceramic necklaces and planters to sell on the site. But, the best part has to be her pattern matched outfits to ceramic pieces. Too good! Her instagram account has many more pairings or browse her wares here.

For Chanel’s 2015 resort collection Lagerfeld took inspiration from Pojagi, a style of quilt making.  This traditional Korean textile which is pictured below, was a new take on Chanel’s signature quilting.

These jubilant brush marks are the creation of California artist, Kindah Khalidy, who hand paints a variety of products from artwork to clothes, and even leather goods. Crafted in limited edition collections, each piece varies slightly for true one-of-a-kind appeal. I just picked up this one and its vibrant palette and whimsical arrangement makes me smile.
