Continuing my collaboration with LORDTIMEPIECES, I’ll have to admit I’m very happy we’ve formed an ongoing partnership.

NOISE #01

TIME – Vol. 1 I ‘ve been having these thoughts regarding time as a limit and time as a tool. What it is to feel restricted by factors and responsibilities that in the end are set by nobody else than the exact person itself.

SPOTTED WHITES

Today’s concept was simple, white base black ends. However there is always a way to make things more interesting, more personal.

ONE STEP TWO STEPS

Let a girl play.    Safe. What would it be like if we never did exactly what we wanted, tried exactly what we craved for? The time will come, she said, next time she said. Well, that doesn’t necessarily describe me, it’s not a diary, just thoughts. A doodle. One step at a time it’s …

Have you ever heard of the phrase “Best plans are the cancelled plans”? Well, let’s start from the beginning so that everything makes sense.     Most of the times, I feel like my ambition and creative energy forces my actions to collapse like an endless domino.

Faux Real

I love Stella McCartney and it’s not just because of her incredibly chic design aesthetic, only Stella could create a faux fur so impressively perfect that even an alpaca would look twice.  We love our furry friends around here but we’d prefer to see them roaming free, so thank you to Stella and the designers below […]

Chanel N˚5

As Gisele Bunchen paddled into the surf with a black Chanel surfboard underneath her in the most recent Chanel N˚5 campaign by Baz Luhrmann, all that we could think was that’s “The one that I want”.  With this magnificent campaign in mind I recently put pen to paper to create an illustration for Chanel featuring their model […]

Michael Kors Escape

ESCAPE or to ‘Escape’ and break free from confinement or control as per the Oxford Dictionary, is a term that Michael Kors knows best.  Who else but MK and his band of jet setting devotees would have a better handle on escaping reality to get away from the everyday rat race.  When I was recently approached by this eminently […]
