Model crush: Rhiannon McConnell

rhiannonmcconnel

Pruunide silmade ja tedretähnide kombo on miski mis juba eos teeb inimese minu jaoks ingliks. Twiggy, aasia kaunitari ja cyberpunk poisstüdruku kombo sinna otsa, ning mu süda on sajaks tükiks. Saame tuttavaks – Rhiannon McConnell, täitsa noor ja senitundmatu modell Vision Model Management – LA’st. Sirvisin instagrami ja seal ta oli, haldjas küberruumis.
The combination of brown eyes and freckles is already something that makes a person an angel for me, but combination of Twiggy, asian beauty and a cyberpunk tomboy hits me straight in the heartbrain. Meet Rhiannon McConnell of Vision Model Management – LA. I simply stumbled upon her on Instagram and got kind of lost in her fairy looks.

Art Nouveau jewellery & René Lalique

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hiljuti rääkisin ühe tuttavaga, kes esitas mulle küsimuse millist ülikoolist saati polnud kuulnud, selleks oli mis kunstivoolud ja kunstnikud on minu lemmikud? Hullult keeruline on nüüd sellele vastata, olles kuidagi igapäeva rutiinis niivõrd tänases päevas sees ja mäletades peamiselt emotsioone mida teatud kunst ja tööd tekitasid, kuid mitte päris nimesid endid. Aga nagu enamusele graafilistele disaineritele meeldis mulle enim juugend ja pop kunst, neis mõlemis on sümbolismi ja vektorjooni mis graafikuid väga võluvad. Kõigi eest muidugi ei räägi, aga kuidagi selline mälestus jäi.

Kuigi ma ei arva, et kõik uus on hästi unustatud vana, täitsa uut on ikka ka tore näha, kuid René Lalique töödest on niiniinii palju õppida. Vaadake kuidas on esile tõstetud magevee pärlid ja iga detailike on paigutatud mitte niisama blingimise eesmärgil, vaid ikka selleks, et toetada üldist pilti. Igastahes rännak aastasse 1885 oleks üks tore ettevõtmine.

Ja niivisi kunstivaimus kutsun kõiki EKA100 Karnevalile mis toimub juba täna, riietage ennast Lalique eheteks ja läki.

I recently had a conversation with a person who asked me a question I haven’t heard since my uni years, it went down like this – which art periods and artists are my favourites? And it’s quite hard to answer that really, as I remember the feeling I had when experiencing some sort of art, but I can’t put my finger on names. But as most of graphic designers, I guess most.. I loved and love art nouveau and pop art, the graphic lines and stories it tells are simply very appealing for a young designer. Of course I can’t speak for everybody, just me and some mates.

Altho I don’t think that all new is well forgotten old, I love when new is current and absolute, I can say that René Lalique work is clearly something that should make a comeback as we have so much to learn from it. Every detail is sensually put, look at those pearls – not just hanging there for an extra bling. Going to the year 1885 would sure be nice.

And in the vibes of art history, if you are in Tallinn, come to Art Academy100 carnival tonight, make yourself a Lalique costume and lets go.

SPOOF by NATHALIE CROQUET

Muidugi kui te jälgite Buzzfeedi või mistahes muud sotsiaalmeedia massikanalit, siis olete juba kohanud NATHALIE CROQUET projekti SPOOF, aga vaatamata sellele tahan ma väga, et see leiduks ka Uustuusas, tahan, et see jõuaks võimalikult paljude inimesteni ja eestlasteni kaasarvatud. Endine moetoimetaja Nathalie Croquet tegi ära nii võimsa töö – kunstilises mõttes, stilistilises mõttes, KONTSEPTUAALSES mõttes. Ei ma ei arva, et issand issand küll need modellid on jubedad ja alatoidetud inimesed, sugugi mitte, kuid ma arvan et ilu mis pole matemaatiliselt perfektne on SAMUTI ilu ja paljud sedamoodi kaunid inimesed veedavad liigagi palju aega kulisside taganurkades. Kui ma vaatan neid pilte, siis ma ei mõtle ahahaa küll on naljakas et mingi vanem naine tegi samasuguse meigi nagu noored tšikid, ma mõtlen Wow mis selle naise lugu võiks olla, kas ta läheb röövima panka, kas tal on kodus lahe koer? Ja see ongi oluline karakteri sissetoomisel moefotosse, nii kaamera taha kui kaamera ette. Nathalie sa oled imeline!
Of course if you follow Buzzfeed or any other mass online media you have probably already met SPOOF by NATHALIE CROQUET, but even so, what I want is this project to be out there even more and for that matter I take it to meet Estonia. Former fashion magazine editor Nathalie Croquet does such a great job both artisticly, stylisticly and what’s more important CONCEPTUALLY. No I don’t think that model world is awful or too thin or whatever regular folks say it is, I just think not super smooth mathematically conducted humans are ALSO beautiful, interesting and spend too much time behind the scenes by the way. When I look at these pictures I don’t think ‘oh look there’s a young girl and there’s a mature woman with the same make up ahaha, I think ‘wow I wanna know what this woman’s story is, I wonder if she’s about to rob a bank or she has an awesome dog at home. And that’s one important point what people with character bring to the fashion shoots, behind or in front of the camera. Nathalie you rock!

Lady Petrova from the Unicorn Land

Paistab silma, et Petrova Hammondi esimesteks modellideks ja muusadeks olid Barbie nukud, tundub et ka siiani. Austraalia esimese Project Runway finalist on riietanud Lana Del Reyd ja loonud omaette väikese moeimpeeriumi. Mulle muidugi meeldib kõik võluv ja ükssarvikuline, kuid antud kaubamärgi veebipoe puhul on natuke raske leppida ülikõrgete hindadega, sest fotodelt otsest hinnalist kvaliteeti keerukas tabada. Samas meeldivad mulle hullult need Croon shoes kassinägudega kingad, nii kui pilgu peale heitsin tuli save as aken lahti.
You can clearly see that Petrova Hammond’s first models and muses were Barbie dolls huh. Australia’s first Project Runway 2008 finalist has dressed Lana Del Rey and basically created a little empire of her own. I like the stuff because I like everything unicorn, but I’m not sure about the prices as the quality of the does is hard to capture in photos. But what I really really like are these Croon shoes with cat faces, that’s something that caught my eye in a sec.

ultra cute Sarah Jessica Parker teenage years

Vahel nimetatakse 80-90’te staaride looke moefopaadeks, mulle tunduvad need aga armsad, siirad ja magusad. Kahjuks Hollywoodi kuulsused ei tegele päevad läbi vanade paberfotode sisseskännimisega ja googlisse laadimisega, kuid mõningaid pärleid ikka vahel leiab. Ja nendest on muide ka päris palju õppida – kust tulid tänapäeva Cara Delevigne tihedad kulmud, kust algas ketsimood ning kui oled piisavalt kaval, siis saad ka aimu kuhu trendid juba tänasel päeval liikuma hakkavad. Siit minu väike arhiiv ülinunnust vanakooli Sarah Jessica Parkerist.
Some call 80-90’s celeb fashion a faux pas, I call it cute, sweet and sincere. Unfortunately celebs don’t spend their days scanning those pictures of themselves and uploading them to google. But it’s sure awesome to find such pearls sometimes. You can also learn a lot from these pictures, where the nowaday Cara Delevigne bushy eyebrows come from, where the sneaker fashion started, and if you think ahead – also where will it all go next. Here’s what I have in my little folder for ultra cute Sarah Jessica Parker teenage years.

DINOSAUR CHALLENGE FOR THE WHITEPEPPER MAGAZINE FEAT MAIKEN STAAK, ERLE TAKLAI & THE PIXELSTICK!

thewhitepepper_newkewl_uustuus_helenevetik

Kui ma kirjutasin fännipostitust THE WHITEPEPPERist polnud eriti lootust ega aimdust sellest, et nad võiks mind tagasi fännata ja kutsuda üles osalema dinosaurus-väljakutses :)

Aga nii see läks ja minu valik dinoseeriast on selline fanki kombe. Pildistasime seda seeriat eluandeka Maiken Staakiga kaamera taga ja Erle Taklaiga pintslite varjus. Valguseffektid on täitsa manuaalselt saavutatud Maikeni poolt Kickstarterist hangitud vidinaga The Pixelstick, korralik Päästja Koolikella masin!

Kõrvus saab silmata 90’te Polly Pocket kõrvakaid Etsyst, jalus H&Mi kosse, sokid ja mütsike Monkist.

Tänan omakorda tuusa võimaluse eest ning loodan, et Eesti blogosfääri au sai rahvusvahelisel tasandil taaskord kaitstud.

When I wrote a fangirl post on THE WHITEPEPPER little did I know that this London based kewl-brand would fancy me back and offer a dinosaur challenge for their magazine issue 5.

My choice from the dinosaur series was this lovely jumpsuit and we shot the shoot with ever so awesome photographer Maiken Staak and make-up artist Erle Taklai. All the effects in the photos are created on set, with The Pixelstick, which is a great device Maiken got from Kickstarter.

In my ears you can see original 90’s Polly Pocket earrings I got on etsy, shoes are H&M, socks and hat are Monki.

Once again thank you guys for challenging us, hope we made estonian blogger scene proud and til the next challenges!

Great artists deserve great clients, great clients deserve great artists. Anny Wang for Kester Black.

Graafilises disainis on viimasel ajal / mõnda aega, olnud trendiks minna tagasi 90’te arvutimängude 3D ruumidesse ja elementidesse. Äkki olen see mina, 80’te beebi, või äkki on see lihtsalt väga tuus, aga selline graafika neelab mu tähelepanu mõnuga.

Googlirajadel seigeldes sattusin Kester Black orgaaniliste küünelakkide kodukale ja nägin seal Anny Wang’i töid, see oli uus see oli tuus. Rääkimata Anny stiilist üleüldiselt – nii staatilised, justkui aeg seisaks, kuid imekaunil moel.

Mulle meeldib julgstada kliente võtma riske, palkama kunstnike, tegema koostööd heade illustreerijatega ning siinsamas ongi näha kuidas Anny stiil teeb komplimeni ühtedele küünelakkidele ja sobib sellesse segmenti nagu värv küüntele.

In the trends of graphic design there’s been a comeback movement of retro computergame like 3D spaces and elements. Maybe it’s me being born in the 80’s or maybe it’s me always liking what’s new and kewl, but such graphics move and allure me a lot.

Once I googled myself to Kester Black organic nailpolish webpage and saw these beautiful works Anny Wang created for them, I knew, It’s kewl. Not to mention Anny’s work in general, so static, almost like the time has stopped, but in a rather beautiful manner.

I always encourage clients to take risks, to work with artists, to hire illustrators, and what Kester Black achieved here, is pure smart beauty and I love how Anny’s plastic fantastic style is perfect for nailpolish.
