ArtPattern and Peach Fuzz: French Illustrator Elodie

Our favorite illustrators? The ones who are obsessed with fashion like French illustrator Elodie Nadreau!

Known simply as Elodie, this “Parisienne” has rolled her love for fashion and talent for digitally-embellished drawings into one perfect little package of color, texture, and flirtatious line-work. Elodie’s work emits a soft and sensual ambiance with subtle layers of pattern often weaving in and out of the main subject. Favoring female portraiture Elodie is inspired by what’s happening on the runways and magazines, and I love how she imparts a stippled peach-fuzz effect over much of her work, giving the pieces a warm, almost buzzing quality.

ArtHigh Contrast in Fashion Magazine’s May Issue

If you’re a devoted LuLu*s follower, you’ve probably noticed that we’re more than just a little bit obsessed with black and white at the moment… and it appears we are not alone. We’ve found a kindred spirit in Canada’s Fashion Magazine, as this eye-catching editorial spread can attest. Striking stripes of black and white mingle with bold pops of red for an absolutely mod-velous ode to our chromatic crush, shot by photographer Chris Nicholls. Add model Samantha Rayner’s bold, bowl-meets-bob cut by Greg Wencel, and we simply cannot look away. So take in the sights of this visually stunning spread, and once you’re through, why not indulge yourself in a little something striped?

ArtDavid Bowie Is… The Retrospective at the V & A Museum

If you didn’t get to live it the first time around, now’s your chance to rock out like you’ve been there all along! The Victoria and Albert Museum in London has delved into the depths of the David Bowie archives to put on an epic exhibition that showcases the music/fashion/cultural icon’s rise to superstar-dom, and all of the amazing things he’s done and worn since he reached the cosmos.

Hundreds of bona fide Bowie treasures are on display, including “handwritten lyrics, original costumes, fashion, photography, film, music videos, set designs and instruments.” (StyleBistro) But, in a blatant show of favoritism: let’s focus on those clothes!

If you find yourself on that side of the pond (you lucky devil!), be sure to check out all the magic in person. The best part: visitors receive headsets that automatically play the song/documentary/sound/etc. that’s triggered by your location. So cool! You’ve got until August 11th, so why not make a trip out of it!

In the meantime, look who’s back in the saddle! You can watch David Bowie’s NEW music video, and/or pick up his first new album in years!

From whimsical renditions of classic stories, to Banksy-inspired plates, Red captures it all using food as her medium. It is clear that a tremendous amount of imagination and attention to detail go into each piece, combining food and art in a way that is mouth-watering and magical. Red doesn’t just see everyday objects as they are, she sees the extraordinary things that they could be, and the resulting food art is simply stunning!
