The MET Gala 2017

Posted on May 4, 2017 in Blog, Fashion, Illustration

All I want is draw.

And, since any occasion is good to find inspiration, is that time of the year for the post dedicated to the MET Gala.

The theme was Rei Kawakubo / Comme des Garçons : Art of the In-Between and my Muse for this 2017  is the beautiful Lily Jane Collins (wearing Giambattista Valli) and the illustration that you can find on top of this post is inspired by her.

MET Gala is an event where you can find the most beautiful, elegant and controversial look. On one hand, I am attracted to those kinds of events, but this leads to the restless reflection on it… all this beauty, flair and creativity, are accompanied by vanities and excesses.

Is this only a thought of mine? Or these characteristics are essential one another?

Who knows…

Anyway… Find below my favourite looks! XO

Tutto quello che voglio è disegnare.

E, siccome, ogni occasione è buona per trovare la giusta ispirazione, è il momento del post annuale dedicato al MET Gala.

Il tema era Rei Kawakubo / Comme des Garçons : Art of the In-Between e la mia Musa, per questo 2017, è la meravigliosa Lily Jane Collins (abito di Giambattista Valli) e l’illustrazione che trovate all’inizio di questo post è proprio ispirata a lei.

Il MET Gala è un evento dove si raccolgono i look più belli, eleganti e controversi.

Da un lato sono stimolata e attratta da questo tipo di manifestazioni, ma, allo stesso tempo, nasce in me una riflessione… a tanta bellezza, estro e creatività , si accompagnano vanità ed eccessi.

La penso così solo io? O, forse, sono caratteristiche imprescindibili l’una dall’altra?


A seguire, una carrellata dei look che ho apprezzato di più. XO.
