fashion is nothing without art: Ruben Toledo for Nordstrom

as an art school dropout and graphic designer, i’m always going out of my mind for wicked fashion ads which incorporate quality fashion illustrations. to me, a good fashion illustration will make clothes look even more ethereal and wondrous than any model could ever attempt. i’m talking about the latest issue of Vogue‘s 16 page spread of stunning works by Cuban artist, Ruben Toledo for Nordstrom featuring Andrew Gn, Pierre Hardy, Lanvin, Vera Wang, Missoni, Burberry Prorsum (with an adorable likeness of Agyness Deyn), Alexander McQueen, Zac Posen, Peter Som, Donna Karan, Michael Kors, Valentino, and Christian Louboutin. i bought the 840 page bible and never got past the fiftieth page! look at these!!!


literally stunning. i’m sorry my scanner is on the fritz so i was forced to use a camera which, in combination with the reflective metallic silver paper they were printed on, made it very difficult to capture the detail and did them no justice. but i couldn’t resist prettying up my precious blog with their (albeit, overexposed) splendour. bask, ladies, bask. or even better, pick up the (biggest EVER) September issue. it’s worth the $5 on account of the ginormousness.
