Blazing Summer Get Ready For Fall: Blazers Are Back

Blazers Are Back

How do you tie a look together without looking too stuffy, or too uber trendy? The transition to fall is always a little tricky. The Blazer has made a huge comeback to layer over some wide leg pants; pair with a jeans skirt, or your favorite distressed jeans, or flirty summer dress. I like to pair it with one of my little silk satin pocket squares. It looks fabulous on a little Black or white Blazer-(Yes, white after Labor Day, is a go!) Where it many ways. Another favorite of mine is to always carry a beautiful cashmere scarf. Yes, we know where to find them.

Surrealism and Pop Culture High Brow/Low Brow

Where does it emanate from and what does it all mean? As an Artist and designer I create to inspire and just to see what I can do. I created a book called Cosmic Beauty using Film Images and Studio photographs and then degrading imagery that were high quality photographs by transferring to my iphone and painting on apps, that I found to be exciting, sometimes I would work for hours just redoing the imagery and then I would further deconstruct by collaging and reworking in photoshop. The layers would add new meaning t my work. I called my art POP Surrealism. The Colors and Textures and 3 D Process Popped and added an ethereal and at the same time surreal quality to my work.

There was an art movement created called low brow art or pop surrealism; I have a hard time putting names to art. I think it fits perfectly in it’s own way.

The term “Pop Surrealism” was coined by The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum for its 1998 exhibit of the same name. An exhibit of some of my favorite 

artists. Gregory Crewdson, Cindy Sherman, Mariko Mori, etc. I am not implying to be in company of this art, but to be inspired by the movement. For lack of what to call my work I thought I coined the phrase.  I am influenced by the Surreal quality of imagination that allows freedom of the mind. The colors in my work adding a dimension and 3D push. Water elements are always present in my art.

The New York Times said the exhibit was like water and oil. I like that. From the depth and the shallows. The subconscious and the pop culture can co-exist.

 IT’S COSMIC OUT THERE

                                           IT’S COSMIC OUT THERE

Maybe it all began with a “Bang! ” Designers are Bringing the heavenly Stars, Moon and Sun, to Fashion in abundance. They have shown it’s a “Force Of Nature”, and that there is this energy beyond all. The fascination is past and very present- I love the Space Theme!  I created a Photo Book called “Cosmic Beauty”,  A Grander View -  a book about acceptance and the search for truth in Beauty. (Below are some Images)

I don’t know about you- maybe you missed the “Eclipse,” couldn’t find a great pair of “Space Goggles” - but don’t miss out of the trend of the Cosmos…it will make you reach for the Stars!  Lending us a twinkle of Imagination Big Time, that is sure to ignite the senses….

Design House Chanel has one of my favorite nail polishes that will make the Holiday season sparkle, or at the very least your nails will have a very shimmery glow… check out the Cosmic Nail Enamel ( A perfect Blue Black, with a shimmery glow) In fact Cosmic was the grand theme of Fall/Winter 2018. I am still feeling the mood of Exploration- Have to “Believe!”

Neoprene Fashion

 Neoprene Fashion About Art, Dance, and Leisure                            

Getting the last few days of summer in when you want it to last…this past weekend was incredible on Long Island, the waves were crashing, the temperatures were high and surfers were plenty.

 There was Neoprene on the sand, and some in the water. My new found friends were sporting their wetsuits and tempting the waves, and last looks of summer from the guys.  I am finding more and more designers using this fabric-(Neoprene), in new and inventive ways. Taking this sportier textile to the high end luxury market  and finding a new fit. It can create some fetching attitude. We wear leisure athletic wear on an everyday basis. It's fun to see how it plays out in everyday life, as more and more designers have embraced it. I am loving it on a grey ruffled sweatshirts, as pictured here in the designed sweater by Dice Kayek. I am finding it on bomber jackets, and on laser cut clothes...it translates to an active and fashion lifestyle. Maybe I will make a scarf collection with it. What are your thoughts on the textile? Comfortable? Chic?  Would love to hear from you. Looking forward to seeing it in Fall Fashion. Somehow it might make the last week of summer endless.
