The sweet ballerinas designed by Lucía Be

This special design meets two good things: the shoe label Wonders and Lucía Be‘s creations. I’ve already talked about both on the blog (with the Supernormal campaign and the head-dresses and illustrations by Lucía)

Lucía has designed these ballerinas that will be sold in a limited edition by €89. They are so nice that they’re already sold out, but don’t worry, they will sell more soon. You can pre-order your pair here.

Jessica Chastain editorial in Vogue inspired by famous paintings

The Vogue US December 2013 cover may appear weird at first because of Jessica Chastain‘s strange pose, but the photograph is actually inspired by the famous painting by Frederic Leighton “Flaming June”, painted between 1894 and 1895. This piece wasn’t bidden for at its lowest price ($140) at an auction in the 60′s, but it was later acquired by Luis A. Ferré for the Museo de Arte de Ponce in Puerto Rico, where you can find it now. The editorial, photographed by the great Annie Leibovitz, includes images inspired by iconic portraits from the late 19th century and early 20th from artists such as Klimt, Magritte, Matisse, van Gogh… And also Julia Margaret Cameron’s famous portrait.

Fashion and art, those inseparable sisters. We saw it on the post about the blog Part Noveau and the reinterpretations of icons, and also on the campaign by Valentino inspired by Flemish painters.
