Prada's Trembled Blossoms

Just to Note: 

Have you noticed a change in the layout to your right? Yes, well, procrastinator I am no longer! I've organized my reader's favorite posts so that they are easier to read and personalized my space on this blog somewhat so as a glimpse into some of my favorite places to shop, peruse and the amazing blogs out there I love to read. Therefore, I hope you can forgive the blinking avatars. The avatars might change and there will always be additions and deletions depending on changing tastes and what the needs dictate at the moment. The content will always be the same, championing the underdogs and every artist's view of the world, and highlighting all there is in design par excellence. Thank you for visiting my side of the blogosphere. I appreciate your interest and faith in my daily ramblings:)

Cheers, Maha

All these vibrant colors and prints are, in part, due to the influence of artist and illustrator James Jean. Please enjoy his work below..

Award-winning illustrator James Jean is dreamy. His art is an OxyContin cloud in a clear winter sky. The fluid lines, vibrant color and fantastic subject matter combine melancholia and poetry. Fashion designer Miuccia Prada was so inspired by Jean’s work that she used his art on dresses for her Spring/Summer 2008 collection and has displayed his pieces in her flagship stores across the world. This winter Jean returns to personal projects, culminating in his first solo show on January 10 at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York.
