Posts Tagged ‘trompe l’oiel’

Japanese Designer Tsumori Chisato is my new favorite designer. It seems like I have one every few weeks… Anyway, Chisato’s playful prints and bright colors are like bait to me, so I guess she has reeled me in! My favorite look is the long striped sailor dress- it’s a trompe l’oiel, so you know how I feel about that. The pajama-inspired  red polka-dot pant suit is pretty awesome, too. The drawings on the fourth and fifth photo dresses look like a mythical creature Napoleon Dynamite might have sketched during geography class. Sweet! Yay for Tsumori!!

London-based designer Mary Katrantzou has won my heart! Where did she come from? A relative newcomer, already she has the vision of a , well visionary. As a huge fan of trompe l’oeil fashion, these dresses were Fantastic with a captial F. I especially  love the bell skirts and the curtain trim detailing. The colors are great for spring, too- lively, happy, and PASTEL! Theses dresses are like living in mansion, but without the mansion. I mean you can look out into the ocean out of a window decorated with gardens upon gardens and not leave your house ! … or dress! It’s like a walking timeshare commercial! The only thing missing is a foufy persian cat curled up giving you kitty kisses near the door way. That’s all I ask for, but I can deal with it.  I would take one in every color, errr I mean every picture. Mary Katrantzou is definitely one to watch.

Why do I get a feeling this lady burns patrouli incense all day, doesn’t shave her pits and makes life decisions based on the Psychic Cat on the 3rd Street Promenade? Artist Laura Jacobs dug deep and designed these wacky bras while on a pot high… No…. kidding… she was just under the influence of high quantities of  Progesterone. Anywho, let’s start with the “Bras that pinch”…. it’s more like, “crabs that migrated to the chest”. Ha. Ha. (I think I just dodged a cane.) I think my favorites are the ‘Peekaboo’ and ‘Pink Palisades’. Anything with trompe l’oiel nipples is A-OK in my book. Actually trompe l’oiel anything- including butts are A -Okay. (Those are a hit in Japan, by the way)

But Seriously, the ‘bombe recherche’ is something I would wear….like, in public. Check out Laura’s site for more strange booby-traps.
