Late Summer Blooms - Sublime Cravings Illustration

Savoring the last days of summer in a field of seemingly endless sunflowers. This illustration features 3 of my summer favs: sunflowers, this lovely self-portrait polka dot ruffle one-shoulder top and Adam Selman x Le Specs The Last Lolita cat eye sunnies.

As summer gives way to fall, remember to stand tall and find the sunlight.

Runway Look: Dior Haute Couture Fall 2018

Dior Haute Couture Fall 2018 - Sublime Cravings Illustration

I’m enamored with the direction that Maria Grazia Chiuri has taken Dior since she took the helm at the fashion house. This latest collection featured an array of ethereal chiffon and Chantilly lace dresses in nude and blush tones. Soft, beautiful and refined, the Dior Haute Couture Fall 2018 dress in this illustration features sunray pleated chiffon in the palest shade of pink. Dainty drop earrings embellished with colorful but delicate animal figurines lend a whimsical touch to the whole look.

Luxe in Paradise: Valentino Resort 2019

Current Cravings

Luxe in Paradise - Sublime Cravings Illustration

There’s something so timeless and effortlessly glam about donning a lovely patterned scarf and pairing it with statement sunnies and earrings. In fact every look in Valentino’s 2019 Resort Collection featured head-scarfs, sunnies and large earrings. This illustration features a flowing maxi sundress, over-sized sunnies, a beautiful headscarf and hoop earrings. I decided to add lush foliage and a frosty drink to create a tropical and carefree vibe.

Runway Look: Johanna Ortiz Fall 2018

Current Cravings

Although it’s from Johanna Ortiz’s Fall 2018 collection, this dress is the epitome of sultry and sophisticated summer vibes. This bold red flowing dress, belted by a sumptuous over-sized tropical flower, embodies the aesthetic I can’t wait to play with this summer. That aesthetic is sultry, feminine and apologetic.

Alice + Olivia Fall 2018 - Sublime Cravings Illustration

Currently craving every single piece from these two looks from Alice + Olivia’s Fall 2018 collection.

Plaid, buffalo check, and zebra print … it’s all about the mix of patterns. Oh and I’ve realized how much I need a leather trumpet skirt in my life.

Runway Look: Fendi Spring 2018

Current Cravings

This look from Fendi’s Spring 2018 collection pairs stripes with plaid and a logo print.

Pattern mixing is not for the timid. And for good reason. Done not so well, it can look like you got dressed in the dark. Done well, it can produce a look that is playful, confident and sophisticated.

Are you a fan of pattern mixing?

Runway Look: Saint Laurent Fall 2017

Current Cravings

There’s a reason why pairing a sparkly dress with strappy heels is a “go-to”outfit for holiday parties. Simply put, it’s an almost fool proof formula for pulling together a festive and glam look. But if you are craving a glam holiday ensemble that is a bit more edgy, these runway looks from Saint Laurent’s Fall 2017 Collection are a great source of outfit inspiration. Specifically, you can wear an asymmetrical party dress or a lingerie inspired dress with slouchy boots. Or instead of boots, you can opt for a statement pump (preferably patent leather) in a bright color. Oh and by the way, if you go with a slinky lingerie inspired dress, you should pair it with an oversized double-breasted coat. Not only will it add drama to the overall look, but it will also keep the frostbite at bay.

Runway Look: Tom Ford Spring 2018

Current Cravings

Whether in pale pink silk or bold pink velvet, these blazers make a statement. I love these 2 looks from Tom Ford’s Spring 2018 runway show. The key to the sophistication of these looks is the contrast of textures and colors. For instance sumptuous silk is paired with chain mail in the look on the left, and it is paired with velvet in the look on the right. Also, blush tone pieces provide a perfect contrast for the strategic pops of color from the velvet blazer and cap-toe pumps.

Runway Look: Giambattista Valli Couture Fall 2017

Current Cravings

At the Giambattista Valli Couture Fall 2017 show it was all about ruby lips and fancy frocks. There were so many divine dresses in this collection, but I decided to focus on 2 dresses for this illustration. I started with this lovely gown in a delicate shade of pink, with a bodice embellished with dainty bows and flower petals. The second runway look in this illustration features a deep wine-colored draped silk chiffon floor-length gown accessorized with vintage jewelry. I’m sure we’ll be seeing several dresses from this collection on the red carpet in the months to come.

Runway Look: Lanvin Fall 2017

Current Cravings

Taken as a whole, Lanvin’s Fall 2017 collection featured a mix of menswear influenced pieces paired with very soft and feminine elements. Some of the individual looks, however, were ultra feminine with little to no menswear influenced elements. This particular illustration features a look that combines several elements that are quintessentially feminine. Cascading ruffles in dusty pink and lace couldn’t be any more soft and delicate, but still manage to convey a sophisticated vibe.
