Today’s post is displaying a beautiful and magnificent collection I came across the other day, by a designer I’ve just discovered. The collection is called ‘Lucille the Lunatic’ and the designer is Yvailo. The collection is bold, it’s fun, it’s wearable and it’s a little crazy. The designer has played around with stripes and checks to create illusions and interesting looks. I honestly would like every piece from this collection.
I think the collection speaks for itself, the styling is perfect, the model’s hair and makeup creates an interesting story of a modern day ‘lunatic’. The images illustrate a contrast between a sweet girly girl and a fierce confident woman. The contrasts being associated with a character from a fairy tale blurs the lines and exposes the construct of the main character in fairy tales, showing them to not be as innocent as they’re portrayed.
The Actual Story of the collection:
“1.00am. Again room 303 with her bursts of madness. Tranquillizers obviously didn’t help. The situation was out of control. The security guard as a ghost bent down and stared nervously through the keyhole. White walls. White hair. With black roots. Black nails. Porcelain face. Clothes in black-white stripes. Lucille was admittedly beautiful, refined in a French way. Appearing deceptively gentle as baby pink at first glance. Dangerously provocative a second later. Ferociously unpredictable at third look. What a visual illusion she was. Purring, hissing, sharpening her nails on the walls, rubbing against the corners. She was simultaneously here and there, occupying the room everywhere. This was always the reaction of her pills violently overdosing, followed by vivid hallucinations and loud lonely conversations on her own. LUCILLE wasn’t crazy. Just her reality was unreal.
Suddenly she turned, sniffed deeply, narrowed her eyes as a black feline and fondly approached the lock. “What’s new pussycat?” she whispered daringly.”
