Successful Chanel Advertising?

Is the above ad selling Chanel eyewear or the art of the Chanel tattoo? I spotted one commuter on this morning's 6 train who bought into the body modification message. Maybe Candelaria Cruz, Chi Chi, or Chloe Clamdigger? Or maybe a rabid olympic fan who went to a discount tat artist? Disturbed.

Playing with Paper: Mary Janes

So many deadlines - hats to block, dolls to sew, papers to shuffle and re-shuffle. It's during these times that I take a little break and pick-up something completely different. I've been thinking of taking a shoemaking class, but not before I complete my millinery courses. For now, I'll have to make do with making paper pairs. This book will show you how.

For other paper projects, how about one from Herm├Ęs? For your very own Kelly Purse, follow this post from the amazingly generous Summer Allen-Gibson of Design is Mine.

Shiseido Vintage Advertising

I came upon these beautiful vintage advertising images from Japanese cosmetics company Shiseido and just had to share...

More lovely examples here and here from flickr user tomish*'s.
