Music & fashion (Nina Sky x Stoli)


With a glance, it's almost impossible to not want to be Nina Sky sisters, Nicole and Natalie Albino's long-lost bff. Heavily influenced by Gwen Stefani, they epitomize a raw femininity and masculine cadence that seeps with inspiration. So in honor of ORGNL TV, Stoli asked me to share a few thoughts on the many music and fashion related connections seen and heard over the years.

It's no surprise that Madonna had us all craving lace corsets, pearls and enough tulle to outfit the entire cast of Swan Lake. Or that the year 1957 marks the teen teary-eyed upheaval of Elvis shaking what his mama gave him in a gold lamé suit. It's obvious the parallels between music and fashion have long been hitting hard. And who can forget Lennon's signature sunglasses... a quick Google search and suddenly Liverpool surfaces a mere second to the fashion-friendly inundation of circle frame designs from here to Timbuktu.

In modern times we see everything from designer collection inspired by music and Vogue covers (ahem, Lana Del Ray and Lady Gaga) to Kayne West and his gorgeous (and by gorgeous I mean falls out chair because they cost $5000 gorgeous) Giuseppe Zanotti collaboration. And let's not forget that ridiculously modest soirée often referred to as The Grammy's. As much as the actual awards are truly honored, for many the dedicated fascination remains in what our favorite musicians' decide to wear.

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…
