Prada Baroque Sunglass Illustration Series

Prada1 Prada Baroque Sunglass Illustration Series

Forever with its eye on projecting itself artfully, Prada has commissioned three illustrators to interpret the “Minimal-Baroque” collection of sunglasses from the Spring/Summer 2011 womenswear collection in a series of drawings to be used as part of this season’s campaign. This is an entire personal quirk I realize, but for whatever reason, I have never been a fan of fashion illustrations to the point where they even irritate me! That being said, some of these are quite nice, though that just might be because the collection itself was not only strong, but very graphics and color oriented so it translated well to illustration. Via Dazeddigital.

 MYKITA LUXE Cosima 01 72dpi 540x360 Mykita x Mark Borthwick Spring/Summer 2011 Campaign Launch

Last week we attended the celebration for Mykita eyewear’s Spring 2011 campaign shot by photographer Mark Borthwick (Maria Cornejo’s hubby). The  campaign marks the third year of the label’s collaboration with Borthwick whose images convey a sense poetry and nostalgia,  as if the images were photographs of those casual beautiful  moments of everyday life. The theme or tag line is taken form one of my all time favorite books “The Little Prince” by Antoine de Saint Exhupery “since it is beautiful, it is truly useful…” On the next page, enjoy a look at our faves on the flip as well as the little shinding that took place.
