On a recent buying trip to Milan, I stopped at the Triennale di Milano and took in an exhibition called the “The New Vocabulary of Italian Fashion”. (If you would like to see what this show was about, click here.) I was inspired by the Italian fashion illustrations on display. Which of course led me to go find these artists and see what other things they might be doing. Here are three that I loved the most from the exhibit and samples of their other work.
Cristina del Buono
I love the graphic boldness of these illustrations from Cristina del Buono. If you like them too, you can follow her @cosedisegnate on Instagram. I also love this collaboration she did with Marni for Marni Anticamera.
Gio Pastori started as a digital illustrator but now prefers to work with cut paper. I loved his creative piece of an audience at a runway show (top image). His illustrations are not perfectly flawless, but that is what I really like about them. Very organic and colorful. To see more of his work click here. You can follow him on Instagram @giopastori.
The simplicity of the “getting dressed” illustration was the reason I could not look away from the piece by Anna Parini. Parini is a successful commercial artist working with publications like the New Yorker, New York Magazine and John Hopkins just to name a few. All of her work is clean, playful and at times tongue in cheek. They are loaded with saturated color. To see more of her work click here. Follow her on Instagram @annaparini.
Hoped you liked what you saw and have a great week!
