Exotic Eccentricity

I’m obsessed with surreal and abstract, contemporary artwork. Surrealistic pieces don’t emulate themes or moments featured in typical pictures hanging on the wall, simplistic ads, media hits or campaigns. Surreal artwork stands-out, it captivates an audience and shouts, I admire this art because it can quickly become a buzzing conversation piece and cultural staple.

His portfolio encompasses exhilarating high-speed photography with striking colors in motion and flawless imagery.

Hermès: Elephant Campaign

Hermès: Elephant Campaign

I’m enamored with Parisian haute couture house Hermès, well-known for its exotic women’s and men’s apparel and accessories, plus variety of luxurious goods ranging from handbags to home decor. Hermès’ elephant ad campaign caught my eye because it’s an eccentric concept that plays brilliantly with bold ranges of color and surreal imagery. The  neutral background and bright colors, combined with the elephants exotic characteristics give this ad a majestic appearance. But the notion of the elephants receiving a pedicure, makeover, and going shopping captures the enchanting and exotic Hermès brand experience.

Contemporary Japanese fashion trends, particularly street and Harajuku trends are prominent for creativity, color and pattern blocking, untraditional mismatching and eclecticism. Japanese trends play a pivotal role in popular culture across the globe ranging from fashion to innovative technology.

One of my faviorite Japanese designer labels is Comme des Garçons founded by Rei Kawakubo. Comme des Garçons is well-known for their collaboration with H&M. In general, Kawakubo is a prominent Japanese fashion arbiter with talent for magically re-writing the look books and creating contrasting, eye popping trend ensembles.
