Myrtle Illustrated

i always look forward to hearing from Whitney of LA-based Myrtle because the seasonal lookbooks for her fantastic shop are a thing of beauty. this time was no different, except it WAS different – because instead of using talented photographers, Whitney commissioned six artists to illustrate the FW13 lookbook.

I’ve been privileged to work with some wonderful photographers in the past, but this time I was inspired by all the wonderful young artists I interact with. The lookbook has been drawn by six artists: Mayumi Nose, Alice Rutherford, and Ellen Surrey from Los Angeles; Tuesday Bassen and Kimberly Ellen Hall from New York; and Gracie Chai from Singapore. Each has brought their own style to their favorite designers and pieces from the shop.
