My latest illustration : Girls with iphones, in undies, boots and balaclavas. Inspired in part by the Russian band ‘Pussy Riot’.
I was watching a documentary hosted by Andrew Lloyd Weber, who looks like he could be toad of Toad hall, the documentary was about Pre-Raphaelite painters and it was beautiful. I can’t believe it took me this many years to discover this style, because I can now see this movements influence in everything that’s happening in fashion right now. It’s such an indulgent-teenaged-girls-wet-dream style, reminds me of candles, tarot cards and diaries. Although I can see the tackiness and predictability in it, I dig it.
This movie was on tv the other day, it was released in 1995, and just looking at the clothes made me fully realise what a huge 90’s revival fashion is going through at the moment as nearly all the clothes wouldn’t be out of place at the local hipster hangouts.
So, I’m definitely going to try and make those pink daisy pants, and those round tortoise shell glasses pushed me to the very edge of becoming one of those people that don’t actually need glasses but wear non-prescription ones as fashion accessories. Who’da thunk that watching the babysitters club movie on a Wednesday night would prove inspiring.
