Amazing Head Pieces by Mary Arantes

Her work reminds me aesthetically of my own work which I have included for you to see!

 Yet another mind blowing creations by Brazilian born designer Mary Arantes, creator of the Mary Design brand.  If you recall on one of my older post 'Out of the Box' I wrote about how we get inspired with simple everyday things that are around us.  With a creative mind, one can utilize basically anything in the environment to create a master pieces.  Well.... there it is...... this is one of the examples I was talking about.
I am  Completely blown away by these pieces, the amazing shapes and sizes made out of newspapers, using a refined paper mache technique.   Fabulous!

Theme:  Lightness
"This theme is reflected in the choice of materials and also in addressing sustainable practices, such as zero waste, and upcycling, and ressourcerie.  Translating these concepts into our reality is this edition's dream says Mary.  By having less fashion waste, we will create a less tattered world, a lighter future".

Tuning The S Mood

Into Prada's Summer Exquis 

Since we are now stepping into the summer month of July, although the sun is still on strike in the UK, I thought I'd squeeze this in.  Prada's Summer campaign 2012 was launched early this year.
 Prada took us back into the 1950's chic!  Every garment is wearable, that's what I like most in this collection.  Love the colour palette not to mention the scenario at the gas station with the crisp blue sky.  Cadillacs rolling in, stunning models oozed with style.  Beautiful pastel colour dresses, headscarves, dainty shoes, handbags and sunglasses.  Flawless!
Enjoy the video.

Happy summer holidays for some!
