Lanvin hearts H&M

Lanvin is the latest brand to collaborate with H&M, with previous collections designed by the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney, Comme des Garçons and Sonia Rykiel.

The label's creative director, Alber Elbaz, who designed the range, appears to have been faithful to his promise that it would not just be a 'dress for less'. Elbaz explained that his aim was to add a luxury product to the H&M range, rather than taking Lanvin downmarket.

The collection also has some fabulous shoes. 
And this is one of the dresses:


The collection of both womenswear and menswear will hit 200 stores worldwide on November 23.

Office **** with a heart of gold.

Don't you just love Mad Men?! I do. I love the storyline, the era, but especially the design of the clothes and the sets. Like going back in time.

I now crave pussy bows, figure hugging dresses and pencil skirts. I even wear a pen around my neck now, like she does. I am after all a secretary as well ;-)

Joan is gorgeous. Don't we all want those curves and that beautiful red hair?

Spijkers & Spijkers voor STOP AIDS NOW!

I made an illustration of Dutch fashiondesign duo Spijkers en Spijkers who designed one of the STOP AIDS NOW ArtBags:

SPIJKERS en SPIJKERS: 'Aids is een groot mondiaal probleem, en een ziekte die iedereen kan treffen. Toch is het begrip en de behandeling van aids niet voor iedereen gelijk. Het is dan ook belangrijk dat het probleem onder de aandacht blijft!'

Vanaf 12 november zijn de nieuwe ArtBags van 2010 online verkrijgbaar.

De ArtBags worden zaterdag 27 november gelanceerd in de Amsterdamse Bijenkorf. Vele bekende Nederlanders en modellen showen op de 'ArtBag Catwalk' de tassen. Direct na de lancering worden de tassen verkocht en gesigneerd. Aanvang: 14:00 uur.

De ArtBags zijn vanaf 27 november - zolang de voorraad strekt - verkrijgbaar voor € 5 bij: alle Bijenkorf vestigingen, alle V&D vestigingen, Bruna Boekwinkels, Fairtrade en Wereldwinkels, Cinderella schoenen, Selexyz Donner en Verwijs boekhandels
en bij de hippe Episode 2nd hand clothing stores, die de ArtBags ook in Brussel, Antwerpen en Parijs zullen verkopen!


I did three drawings for
The one that has been chosen I will post after it has been published with a link to the magazine.
These are the other two drawings:

Cacharel S/S 2011

The Cacharel collection by Cédric Charlier was super pink, and cute, with sweater-knit tanks, anoraks, sportif romper/shirtdress combos, camp shirts and long, fluid silk dresses that were shown in increasingly bright shades of pink and tennis-ball yellow. There were only a few prints, which looked like digitally enlarged splatters of paint and ink stains.
