B For Bright

Evidently I've been testing my new camera:as at long last it arrived...I'm often attracted to what others might describe as 'tack' or 'tacky' such as the following objects: snow globes, highly tack-tastic sea side souvenirs, dice, key rings, fruit machines etc etc (you get the drift, already. Basically everything anyone Else's taste buds may strongly detest: I collect). Here's a few objects I snapped when out and about seeking art and fashion print design inspiration...my taste is well illustrated, I feel?
Snazzy..?Snap Shots by: Prettyneons.

Photo from: UK Vogue march issue.

By complete coincidence I bought the UK march issue of vogue (oh Vogue for I have been neglecting your glossy pages:due to saving up for more important yet necessary items, forgive me?). While flicking through it on a long train commute home, I couldn't help but notice the 'acid reign' feature, with the Deyn'sta head to toe in various shades of electric neon's...ties in with my childish clowning around snaps, nicely!




From:Basso&Brooke.s/s '09

Now I am obsessed with textures, fashion textiles surface design and obviously... colour (after all, 'tis what I studied and practiced so extremely long and hard for, many a year) and well Basso & Brooke fulfills my colourful addiction. Basso & Brooke have and will always remain to be my print idols. I've wrote many a essay and dissertation on them fellas designs and I have an enormous collage on my wall which I created soon as I saw their debut collection in my early years at college (the images are still engraved and etched on my memory). There for I must put out a warning this feature is a pure bias opinion. Wow, wow, wow the Basso&Brooke s/s 09 collection is one hell of a bright, print bonanza! An Collage of impressive Japaneses influenced prints, loud large scale floral's over a controlled graphic background-yes please: complete with dazzling beads and glittering embellishments. With a dash of sculptured, origami sheer and jersey pleat and folding effects: fashion volume turned up to the maximum!
Of course if you fail to get your hands on Basso&Brooke garments, do not fear high street is here my friends: to help us achieve such brilliant, bright Basso&Brooke results, whoop, whoop! From top to bottom, we have here: studded skirt found via ebay, bold floral frock at topshop, yellow orchid print silk layered dress from mytheresa.com. Be bold blogger's!
