The starry sky above me…

One of the things which got stuck in my head still from the times of my studies is that the trends never pass. They evolve. I already do not remember who said that but initially I did not want to believe in such a strange theory. How is it – if they do not pass why different things are fashionable every season? Only when I had carefully observed new collections, I admitted that there is much truth in this. 
Let’s take the motif of sky as an example.
In summer the galactic motifs on clothes were the hit (with the brilliant collection of Setareh Mohtarez).

Jedną z rzeczy, które mocno utkwiły mi w głowie na studiach jest to, że trendy nigdy nie przemijają. One ewoluują. Nie pamiętam już kto to powiedział, ale pamiętam, że początkowo nie chciało mi się wierzyć w tę dziwną teorię. Jak to nie przemijają skoro co sezon modne jest co innego? Dopiero kiedy bacznie zaobserwowałam nowe kolekcje, przyznałam, że jest w tym sporo racji.
Weźmy na przykład motyw nieba.
W lecie hitem były galaktyczne motywy na ubraniach (z genialną kolekcją Setareh Mohtarez na czele).

Now the galactic motif appeared on… nails (I reccomend great "space nails tutorial" by Andrea), and on the clothes it turned into a star pattern, the same as from the Dolce&Gabbana collection (a blouse with this motif is one of my autumn „must have”).

Teraz motyw galaktyczny zawitał na… paznokciach (polecam świetny "space nails tutorial" autorstwa Andrei), a na ubraniach zamienił się w gwiezdny wzór, taki jak ten z kolekcji Dolce&Gabbana (bluzka z tym motywem jest jednym z moich „must have” jesieni).

... and my last drawing:)

Following further the „sky” motif, in a way it is possible to foresee what will be fashionable next summer. And, when I came to think that these will be the patterns of clouds, I found these colourful but terrifying photo from the show of Walter Van Beirendoncka
Hmmm… I hope that the galactic trend shall develop in a different direction but I do not imagine wearing anything like this for work :) hahaha

Idąc dalej tropem „niebiańskiego” motywu, można w jakimś sensie przewidzieć, co będzie modne przyszłego lata. I właśnie kiedy pomyślałam, że będą to nadruki chmurek, natrafiłam na te kolorowe, ale przerażające zdjęcia z pokazu Waltera Van Beirendoncka
Hmmm… Mam nadzieję, że galaktyczny trend rozwinie się jednak w innym kierunku, bo nie wyobrażam sobie iść w czymś takim do pracy :) hahaha

PS. Apart from Mr and Ms Cloud, the eccentric designer proposes also the look à la Tree or Chicken :)

PS. Oprócz Pana i Pani Chmurki ekscentryczny projektant proponuje także look ala Drzewko lub Kurczak :)
But this is a quite different story…
I wish you all a nice and creative day :) xx

Ale to już zupełnie inna historia…
Miłego i kreatywnego dnia dla wszystkich:) buziaki

So true about fashion evolving... Love it!!


Ashley said...

My first thought was how 80s your gorgeous illustration reads...so that quote is quite accurate! I will not, however, be jumping on the chicken train!

Anne said...

Oh I love Mr. and Mrs. Cloud! :-D
As rest of Mr. Van Beirendonck' designs (never heard of him before)...
And your drawing is beautiful!
Alltough I was kind of hoping to never see shoulder pads on shirts again...;)

Love, love, love your art!! I have a 3 -year old jumper that I can't seem to let go because it's covered in stars and it's a lovely piece...though not as gorgeous as your wonderful drawing!
