One thing I want to start posting on this blog is illustrations I’ve made of some fascinating pieces of fashion.

I decided to start with illustration of an elegant dress from the Maxime Simoens’s S/S 2012 Couture collection.

This dress seems to carry a very 1930s spirit. It brings to mind progressive streamliners, functionalist architecture, art deco and Tamara de Lempicka, all at the same time.
