Art and Fashion

Parisian jewelry artist Lydia Courtielle enlisted digital artist Natalie Shau to create images for her assorted lines of breathtakingly cool jewelry. Artists and designers have a history of working together (Dali and Schiaparelli come to mind, and even recently James Jean and Prada) but you don't see to much truly innovative work these days in terms of advertising. I love this. I wish there was more of this type of thing. How cool would it be to open a magazine and see a Lori Earley painting of an elongated dress, or an Esao Andrews girl wearing Marc Jacobs as her head explodes into flame. Totally brilliant.
I like Natalie Shau's works mainly because it feels like she is having a total blast creating them. It's endearing.
