It is not pink like the one in the Louis Vuitton pumps illustration, but the leather brownish colour of the peep-toe shoes illustration below is always an attraction for me, especially when sun shines.
Yes, sun is shining in London – :-O – and what a better occasion – this is the case – for wearing peep-toe shoes for a stroll in the park?
Unfortunately, I cannot remember the designer of the leather open toe pumps. I recall the brand is Italian, but I forgot the name! This is why the question mark in the peep-toe shoes illustration title!
Jenny Packham, the most successful British designer, is second to none in the wedding industry and at red carpet events with an A-list of celebrities and iconic women such as the Duchess of Cambridge. Since the launching of the company in 1988, her bridal gowns have appeared on national and international bridal magazines with collections sold at the most prestigious department stores such as Harrods and Neiman Marcus.
When I heard from @Bridesmagazine that Jenny Packham was having an end of line bridal sale in London I couldn’t help but sneaking a peak again at the 2013 bridal collection. At last I felt that inspiration that an artist needs to finish an artwork. The Astrantia wedding dress illustration I started when I first saw it was quickly completed. How not falling in love with a crystal embroidery that makes you sparkle on your day?!
Soon the sale will touch base in Manchester on 18th April. It’s interested to hear from the London brides who attended the sale event in Conduit Street. Did you find your one of a kind wedding dress?
Who is behind the team? How many times do you wonder who the amazing people behind the scenes are? Privilege Entertainment illustration is the first of a series of meet-the-team illustrations.
London based Privilege Entertainment was founded by stilish Italian entrepreneur Francesco Trivelli, who works hard with other three collaborators Carlo, Lorenzo and Nicola to provide the best entertainment services in the city!
So, if you are in London you can’t miss the best clubbing experience with Privilege Entertainment! Always privilege fun!
Inspiration for this macarons illustration has come from a gift delivered to my sister’s for Christmas. A lovely pastel Ladurée box from Paris!
Ladurée macarons do not need any introduction as they are the most popular biscuits and the favourite sweet treats of children. What people might not know is their origins, which are not French, but surprisingly, Italian!
As holiday approached the Beyoncé and baby Blue Ivy illustration, which goes back to July, went to the drawer!
The pop singer Beyoncé with her daughter Blue Ivy on her hip were caught by paparazzi during their shopping trip to New York City in July. She showed off not only her little girl, but also her newly braided hair tied up in a bun!
The Beyonce and baby Blue Ivy sketch is still unfinished!
As a matter of fact I truly love shoes. So illustrating the Rupert Sanderson sandals has been an enjoyable time. The inspiration came after a shopping tour with my special friend at Selfridges on a Saturday afternoon – not really the right time to go shopping as it was very crowded!!!
The Italian-made Rupert Sanderson sandals are drawn from the colours of the Union Jack and have been designed for the Queen’s Jubilee and the London 2012 Olympics.
The Marquita sandals, made of patent leather, are the best choice for a summer and Olympic night out!
Where has the good weather gone?! In London the weather remains unpredictable: showers, sun and wind on the same day. Typically British. Only a week ago we were under the illusion that sun lotions, skimpy dresses with designer sunglasses (=occhiali da sole) would remain with us for the following months.
So Chanel sunglasses illustration, on a classic aviator style, is a hope for a better weather soon, which means loads of smiles on people’s face through the city streets.
Chanel sunglasses for a hope that chance of rain and low temperatures will remain just a vague memory!
It’s 2012, but Giuseppe Zanotti Design pastel blue suede wedges (= scarpe con la zeppa blu pastello) from the spring/summer 2011 collection are still one of my favourites.
Much loved by celebrities and the international jet-set, the Italian shoe designer was influenced by his tailor mum, but surprinsingly he started his career as a DJ playing music for seven-eight years! Luckly Giuseppe Zanotti decided to freelance sketching shoes giving us the most fashionable shoes in the world!
