I love this tribute to the pretty world of lipstick. It’s kooky and I’ve pinched it courtesy of AnOther Magazine. I love Julie Verhoeven’s work (she’s an artist and fashion illustrator, and has worked with some of the big names, including Mulberry and Louis Vuitton) and tho’ here, we don’t speak the same language (I am a beauty product nut, Julie isn’t particularly – I know – we’ve talked about it in the name of Vogue Japan and someone else I think) I like it. It’s disarmingly honest – and funny. She’s good. Very good. Check out her site here for more of what she does.
Tag: Julie Verhoeven
I’m a nut for fashion and beauty illustration, from today’s David Downton (classic, deft, elegant) to the edgier, but equally exquisite, Julie Verhoeven. So it’s with excitement that I read about René Gruau’s forthcoming exhibition at Somerset House this November.
I have little more to tell you as yet, except that he is what you might call (well I do) the grandfather of 20th Century illustration. His life spanned the decade – 1909–2004. It’s going to stacked with his delicious illustrations for Dior (he and Christian Dior were also friends) – as well as a collection of specially commissioned pieces from half a dozen UK based illustrators.
Gurau and Dior: the collaboration, of course.
