What is it about her exactly? Let's examine,
- The 70's shag sensation she is rocking with the layers, echoing a Bob Dylan reference in time
- The loose bangs
- Her fierce attitude
- Chiseled features
And then there was Chanel's F/W 2009 Spectacular Spectacular! Needless to say, that will have its own post soon enough. However lets take a moment to reflect on the superb workmanship between Freja Beha and Baptiste Giabiconi on the runway.
- Unisex styling... has never looked so chic! At a single glance you forget they are both wearing the same pieces. Yet a pale tweed blazer on a man? Yes! Yes! Yes! *a cry to all men* take note!
- Everything about these four images work harmoniously well together and looks equally exquisite on them both
- Their swept back slicked hair, "tomboy" elegance and walk of unison evokes equality, unity and strength.
Pretty much I am head over heels for this combination. Words don't do justice, but let these photos tell you everything.
I needed to share this image... why, because Freda Gustavsson is just sooo breath takingly beautiful, that when I scrolled down and saw this photo on www.knighttcat.com I was literally speechless, it took my breath away and left me in aw of her porcelain doll features and effortless style.
The discipline of those legendary individuals who paved the way, creating milestones in history, encourages our ability to draw outside the lines, find new solutions and step outside the box.
I felt it was only appropriate to begin this blog with one of my greatest sources of inspiration. The painting above of dear Mademoiselle Coco Chanel was taken during my travels to Paris 2008, as I discovered her at Le Orangie Musei.
and since the beginning I have found myself drawn to her strength, courage, determination and creative ability to design with restraint while breaking the molds of societal norms.
as this adventure continues to develop, you may notice my reference to Coco from time to time.
until then, happy blogging!
