This trend is all about sharp and aggressive edges. These two karen Millen bags reflect this idea perfectly.
This idea is to have embellishment and decoration that is symmetrical or orderly. Studs arent usually decorated with such an ordered manner making it an interesting idea. Metallic finishes are used with geometric shapes. The two bags on the right are from Topshop The bag below is a geometrically shaped bag from All Saints. The bags next to that are from ASOS.

Part of my next project is to create fashion illustrations for my Autumn/Winter 10/11 design collection. My designs are in the style of Junya Watanabe and I hope to illustrate my collection with his signature style also. I am going to begin by researching some different illustrators and investigate their various techniques and methods.
I have started with the young and contemporary illustrator,Veronica Ballart. Her soft lines and harmonising use of colour have inspired me to investigate watercolours and gouache as a illustration technique.Her illustrations are delicate and evoke a definate sense of femininity.
Gustafson is an established illustrator that has worked with designers such as Comme des garcons, Chanel and Yohji Yamamoto. His abstract and conceptual style fits well with the designer I am currently researching(Junya Watanabe). I particularly like the Comme des Garcons illustration featured on the left.
