Chanel Fall-Winter 2010/11

Wow! Amazing! I love it so much!
Fashion, art and sculpture collide in the making of this magnificent Lion statue at the Coco Chanel couture show in Paris, France. The design was inspired by a dream fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld had about the late Coco Chanel’s miniature lion sculpture. Karl immediately dispatched his lead set designer Stefan Lubria to make the colossus as the center piece of the Chanel Fall-Winter 2010/11 Haute Couture line.
The inspiration for the lion is clear – born on August 19th, Gabrielle Bonheur “Coco” Chanel was a Leo. She loved lions and they surfaced everywhere from her apartment decor, buttons and even her gravestone. The centerpiece for the haute couture runway show is a replica of a marble sculpture from her infamous apartment at 31 Rue Cambon. “Gabrielle Chanel surrounded herself with models of lions in wood, silver, bronze or alabaster…and the lion became a timeless biographical seal on numerous of her creations.” (Chanel News).

Maggie Taylor

Maggie Taylor began her career as a photographer by making still lifes with a 4x5" view camera. In 1995 she began using the computer as a retouching tool for her images, scanning her 4x5 negatives. I like her illustrative style. It's so unique! If you enjoyed her arts, visit her site for more about her.

McFancy & McMobile by Access Agency

That was a project by The Cool Hunter for a pitch to McDonalds for an upmarket pop-up restaurant for fashion week. The concept was to give McDonalds food a complete makeover and re-brand the fast food giant with an aesthetic suitable for a 5 star restaurant. Great work!

Art in boxes

The artist Pina Delvaux collects and puts together in boxes objects which have got lost. Useless, orphaned things allow her to develop new statements in her own artistic language. I love her works so much! Every box seems has a story and own history.
