Daisies and roses, Hoses and noses.

Daisies and roses, 
Hoses and noses, 
Freckles on a mountain,
starting to grow old
( Note: I know I sound pretentious, but you'll see why if you read on.)

Bugs crawling round your neck, a shoe on your head and a leaf suit- however, it's just a representation of unconscious thoughts. Take a dive into the surrealist world, playing with reality and creating dreamscape pieces. It started in the 20th Century with poets and Artists, and of course this influenced fashion. Famous Artists inclued Dali, Magritte, De Chirico, Man Ray to Oppenhiem. To all those who live in London, you may have been aware of the Ballet Russes exhibition at the V & A, costumes designed by  De Chirico. Though it was not just costume design, there was a place in Fashion too; seen in the works of Schiaparelli- Chanel said 'The famous Artist who makes clothes'. 




Hussein Chalayan SS11- reminds me very much of The lovers (as can be seen above)
Benoît Méléard tribute to American designer Beth Lavine


So what made me do this post? Surrealism is oozing in inspiration. Surrealism can be seen in collections today such as Hussein Chalayain, to shoe designer Benoîte Méléard. Plus Even in hair products, such as Hershesons clip on hair accessories- there's so much you could do with the pieces to layering, to stitching on flowers (I'm certainly going to be purchasing a piece).





So lets fly off with the birds,
and make daisy chains,
to finish off this lousy surrealist poem,
that's already flown with the coo coo birds.
