A Painterly Spring

guys, following the fashion shows is exhausting. Spring 2017 is only in London now, which means Paris and Milan still have to come! i looked at (what felt like) hundreds of shows and realised I’d only scratched the surface of New York fashion week. so, instead of doing an exhaustive rundown i decided just to pair some of my favourite pieces from various designers – who have shown thus far – with some interesting contemporary art.

some who didn’t make the cut, but pieces i LOVED, are the entire Co collection, this look by Jenni Kayne, everything by Whit, all these floaty pieces by Ulla Johnson, this dress by Altuzarra and what Victoria Beckham wore at the end of her show (ha!). if you guys like this post then i’ll carry this over to the rest of the fashion weeks. we all know Valentino is always good…

  1. These are my very favorite posts of yours! Clever, fun and totally original. Please keep it up for the rest of the fashion weeks, even though it’s exhausting and you’ve got the little guy to balance <3

  3. Fashion week coverage usually feels overwhelming and a little inaccessible to me but this is AMAZING!

  4. This is fabulous! I knew there was a reason why I constantly check your blog.

    Love your eye.

  5. These models are SO unnaturally thin its hard to look at them. I hope my daughters never see these pics.
