In the midst of fashion month for Fall/Winter 2013 I realize it's a bit late to post about this Spring Couture 2013 collection, but there's just too much new fashion to keep up on these days. How do these designers prevent their creative wells from running dry? Though I don't normally follow all of the couture shows, this one really stood out to me. Ulyana's street style has been catching my eye for a while, and I was excited to see her adapt that style for a full collection of stunning couture pieces. I read that there was inspiration from Gone With the Wind and other American iconography, but I also see a lot of Russian heritage here in the vein of Anna Karenina. Some of these ensembles can verge on being costumey, but there are some great moments. Here are my favorites.

A few months ago, I joined Pinterest. Some people say they can't make the jump from paper to screen with art and design inspiration, but I'm hooked. It's not the same as print, and it can be a bit overwhelming at times. But I love the easy functionality of Pinterest, and the boundless inspiration I find on it. I should probably spend more time on this blog than on Pinterest, but for now I will share some of my favorite pins as of late.

I stumbled on Mario Hugo's website and can't stop admiring his range of work. I'm always impressed when a designer/illustrator/artist can display a high level of versatility in a body of work that has such a defined style. There is something about the textural quality, muted color palettes and subtle use of refined typography that always make each piece unmistakably Mario.
