I came across the wonderful collaboration between artist, Janine Rewell, and shoe designer, Minna Parikka, and just had to share the images. Inspired by her latest footwear collection, Rewell approached Parikka and the two worked together to create these stunning adverts which showcase the essence of the footwear, as well as making the shoe the only actual garment in the shot (clever advertising).
The final images reminded me of the my Klimt Again post, in which Klimt inspired clothing was photographed on matching materials and backgrounds to connect the whole image. Work by Gorman has also been showcased here which has a similar vibe, with outfits photographed in front of matching backgrounds. With Gorman, however, the clothing was actually inspired by the art (awesome). With Rewell, the shoes inspired art, but what makes the art so cool is that is becomes one with the body. I wonder why I haven’t seen something like this before? Certainly worth the time and effort that would have gone into designing the patterns and then executing them onto a human figure. I also love the way the shots have been layered over each other. It reminds me of an all glass mirror that has angled edges that reflect in this way. A really creative, fun idea and a refreshing and engaging way to advertise. You can take a look at a bit more of the process below.

A while back I posted some Klimt homages. In my research I found some cool fashion shoots from Vogue that had a Klimt vibe, but I didn’t quite deem them right for Copy Klimt. I thought I would share them now as they are really quite nice images. One can definitely see the Klimt essence, yet these images are quite modern and edgy. I love the merging of pattern – from sheets, cushions and clothing to the effect of tattoos through body paint. This really unites each piece, and the tattoo and 50s style look of the model transforms the piece into something original. Really fun and vibrant pieces! A great way to kickstart your weekend. Enjoy! x
We move into the zodiac sign of Leo today (bring on the fun birthdays!) and as I happened across this image today, I thought it would be a shame not so share it.
Looks like a lion, but is really a woman. It’s fascinating what one can achieve with body paint huh?
If you want to check out your own sign (assuming my reader’s aren’t all Leo’s) you can find the rest here (although sadly, it seems that Taurus and Virgo (that’s me!) are missing or haven’t been done, so that’s a bit of a shame)
