Tulips are My Favorite Flower

I love this behind the scenes video of Fabrica‘s latest designs for Benetton. Warning: I might will steal the upside-down tulips idea.

I’ve Waited So Long

Wednesday, December 8th, 2010

I’ve been waiting so long to feel inspired by color for my new spring collection, and nothing was striking me. This is saying a lot considering my job at one of the biggest trend and color forecasters in the world. But today, my heart stopped when I saw these images by Tim Lisko called shinkansen. Lasko took these by leaving his shut­ter open while on a high-speed bul­let train from Tokyo to Osaka.

Instead of my usual routine of taking color swatches for my palette, I am going to collect images that inspire me. Since I’m using only recycled fabric for this collection from now on, it will be impossible to color match directly. So instead of a specific color story, I’m aiming for a mood. This is a brand new approach for me, and I am so excited to try it.
