this post all started with a dress. well, actually... it all started when i was ploughing through hundreds of photos of the Resort 2016 collections. but that’s not such a great intro, is it? truth be told i’m kind of lost when it comes to “the shows”. i might see one frequently popping up on my feeds (this year it’s been Gucci and Dior – but purely because of the venue) and then i cautiously dip my toes into a veritable ocean of fashion, which can be an overwhelming ordeal for even the seasoned blogger. and my main aim is how to show you what i think is cool, without it being, well, boring. so how do i do that? the best way i know how: a colour comparison.
i thought i’d share a little resource with you today. if you’re into dabbling around with imagery, need inspiration for visual projects or graphic design moodboards or whatever – you might be interested in the Biodiversity Heritage Library. they have hundreds (thousands?) of hi-res images from a consortium of natural history and botanical libraries. you can delve into a world of insects and botanicals and fungi and sea creatures… gorgeous even just to look at.
