I had the good fortune of seeing Jeana Sohn show at Giant Robot this past weekend. I love how delicate her work looks in person and how fine her handiwork is. I want to definitely purchase one of her lovely postcard size drawings - it is on my "Must Have" list. Jeana has such a great range of blues that create a great amount of mood and tenderness in her characters.
I am not really interested in the 'Diary' work of Corrine Day even though maybe I probably should be. I can't help, but love the fashion photography that she did and then turned her back on. The work for Emmanuel Ungaro and her photos of Kate Moss are truly breathtaking. She is conveying so much emotion in her eyes and seems to truly connect with the camera. Also I can't help but love that necklace she is wearing.
I am happy to have found Australian designer Akira this morning while searching through numerous blogs secretly at work. I love their easy silhouettes and lovely mix of patterns. However my favorite thing in the whole collection would probably have to be those necklaces!
DKNY regularly supports emerging design talent and this new challenge was no exception. 21 RISD textile design students got to work with 2 designers at DKNY to develop the new idea of Cosy! What a great opportunity! The theme of the show was 'Wrapped' and they were encouraged to push the envelope of what is considered comfortable and the idea of the 'sweater'.
Donna Karan said, "This project gives students a chance to balance the creative with the commercial. They also get the chance to work with the silhouette in new and exciting ways, which is the most educational thing of all."
