Vivienne Westwood, Sid and Jules B

There's no denying it, Vivienne Westwood radiates character. Enough so that not only did I decide to add her to my Charcoal Series but her intrigue makes me want to stroll about Buckingham Place in a tattered Sid Vicious t-shirt and a pair of platforms I'd almost certainly collapse in. Her iconic vision and cultural movement of contemporary punk is carried by few and the simple strike of small black and white keys forwarding a Google search proves an easily perceived reality that only she looks good with carrot-tinted locks. 
From her extraordinary Sex and the City designs in the 2008 film adaptation, highly publicized political involvements and jaw-dropping runway spotlights, her intrepid creative arsenal remains untouchable. I took some time browsing through the collection of Westwood designs over at www.julesb.co.uk, both Anglomania (oooh, this) and Red Label and somewhat unsurprisingly ended up hypnotically engaged in the accessories line. Have you seen them... head over to Jules B and check'em out!

Designs by Bella: Vintage Lollipops x Magazzini del Sale Capsule Collection

Last year, Italian designer Graziano Moro of Magazzini Del Sale contacted me about collaborating and designing a five-piece Limited Edition capsule collection for their SS 11 Love Can Change the World t-shirt line. Having never been given such an incredibly surreal opportunity before, you can imagine my absolute surprise... followed by some sort of psychotic jubilation. At the time, I'd only been drawing for about a month, which means the designs you're seeing are some of my very first artworks! Brainstorming endless possibilities, the process began with a series of sketches, clipart graphics, and silhouette collages until I further conceptualized the vision by deciding to submit only my illustrations.  After presenting numerous options, Graziano and the team exclusively selected their top picks... and after several months of diligence, reworking, and constant communication, my artwork was transformed into a beautiful line of ecru shirts forever deemed, Vintage Lollipops x M…
