i have been lusting like crazy after clothing these days. i'm not sure if it's just cabin fever or the restlessness that tends to accompany february and march, but it's certainly persistent. while i am not allowing myself to give in, i am allowing myself to ogle, mouth agape, eyes wide, with my wallet safely locked up in a secret place.
meanwhile, fashion illustration + photography tides me over. oh, lovely and unwearable middle ground! in that vein, i present rené gruau. he is an institution in the realm of fashion illustration. he has done work for balmain, dior, and givenchy... among other deeply ingrained names in the industry.
he can evoke the drama and froth of fashion so effortlessly.
and that is that.
