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:

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!
