My take on Chloe Love Story #SaksPOV
The fragrance opens with a radiant orange blossom scent, inspiring me to use some vibrantly coloured flower petals for this look. During my visit to the florist, the brightly coloured yellow and pure white Freesias were first to catch my eye. It is always a joy to work with cheery, bold colours and these flowers happened to be perfect for the look I had in mind.
Playing around with the poses and lines of the fashion figure helps to bring out the desired mood for the look. For this look, the silhouette was drawn to capture the essence of sensuality, gracefulness and the 'expression of a free woman' that embodies Love Story. I especially like the use of a padlock design for the fragrance bottle. It reminds me of Pont Des Arts Bridge in Paris, a true symbol of love and affection.
The second look I created for Chloé was inspired by the Guipure Lace-Trim Silk Chiffon Blouse from Chloe's spring 2015 collection. Mokara Orchids and Purple Eye Asiatic Lilies were used to resemble the bohemian-like patterns of the blouse. Unlike the vibrant and vivid colours I usually work with for my illustrations, these petals have a more muted and somber tone.
To create the illusion of soft ruffles as seen on the blouse, the petals were folded and layered on top of one another. The process of repeatedly folding and layering the petals was quite challenging for me, since the petals were of different sizes. I hope you like the finished look!
