Fashion Focus: “Butterfly effect” in fashion presentation.

The phenomenon of the brightly-colored insects is a great source of inspiration that can be easily followed in the fashion unveiling. Currently and continually I am amazed with the scope of the butterly concept in fashion and its perception into the manner of clothing and jewelry, let alone the fashion editorials.  I have posted many articles concerning the butterfly-adorned ideas that you may find on the pages of EdelScope.com.  Playing with the concept of the bewitching charm of the fluttering wings covered with the amazing palette of colors and patterns can give stunning outcome sometimes with the mind-boggling effects. Take a look into the fashion facus presentation featuring butterfly-inspired concepts:

Pleats Please Issey Miyake 20th Anniversary

Unveling the pleat miracle of PLEATS PLEASE ISSEY MIYAKE for the 20th anniversary, we are introduced into the  visual concept of  “delicious” . Enjoy the electrifying work of Taku Satoh.

As he explains:

For 2012, the 20th anniversary year of PLEATS PLEASE ISSEY MIYAKE, we have adopted the visual concept of ‘delicious’.  No theorizing is needed the moment you see the clothes and you feel a certain, ‘wow that looks delicious, I want to wear it!’ 

Delicious things, is our concept for PLEATS PLEASE.

The word ‘delicious’ came into my mind when I was thinking about the planning of visuals for the year and this word, which is evocative of so many things, kept jumping about excitedly in my head.  It’s an onomatopoeic word – anything that looks visually tempting and exciting, we think of as ‘delicious’.

This year we plan to release many scrumptious and ‘delicious’ visuals, one after another to tempt you!

Fashion Inspiration: The concept of Illustrations by René Gruau in Dazed and Confused fashion story.

La Cigarette by René Gruau

The line signature of René Gruau flourishes with the numerous inspirations in the fashion world until the present day.  Starting from Christian Dior‘s fashion staple , the captivating illustrations of female profiles and elegant silhouettes to current fashion photography including the latest editorial from Dazed and Confused June 2012.  The  story “A Scanner Darkly” unveils the concept of  fashion illustrations by Gruau with the emphasis into the signature line.  The strong dark line for René Gruau was the indicator of emotions, pace, spontaneity perfectly portrayed on the artistic work. Following the concept of this signature line “A Scanner Darkly” infuses the notion of photography and illustration creating  a peculiar mixed-media illusion thanks to the rough drawing makeup effect by makeup artists Yadim and tousled hair byYannick D’Is . When I saw these pictures for the first time I was in a state of entire captivation both for the mesmerizing tribute to René Gruau and current fashion presentation from pre-fall 2012 collections of Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, and Céline.

“Just a line? But it is the basis of all art, with a single line we can express grandeur, nobility, sensuality, the line synthesizes sensations and concentrates knowledge”

Butterfly Effect – Elza Luijendijk by Ben Toms for Dazed & Confused June 2012

This enchanting editorial featured in Dazed & Confused Magazine for June 2012 definitely blurred the borders between fashion and art. The visuals apart from the butterfly themed aura are enhanced with the outstanding styling and art direction. The model’s face is covered with the butterflies, moths and other winged insects  magnifying a peculiar vision of a otherwordly being or human hybrid. Along with the sartorial masterpieces of Alexander McQueen or  Givenchy among others, the images depict how ethereal concept and impeccable styling that can be achieved through the fashion source.
The editorial resembles the Ad Campaign and video of  EDUN for Spring/Summer 2012 by Ryan McGinley who captured the essence of butterflies’ nature.  Worth mentioning is also the jewelry artist that creates tremendous butterfly jewelry under the name HAREM ROYAL
