Pinterest is a marvelous social media platform. For creative artists as myself it is where I create inspiration boards, fashion and artistry, as well as seasonal boards of fashion pins “That Got My Attention”.
I review seasonal designer runway collections from major fashion cities such as New York City, London, Milan, Paris, Tokyo, and Sao Paulo.
I choose my clothing pins for specific reasons.
- Overall Garment Fit & Proportion to the Design and Silhouette
- Staying True to Their Target Consumer
One way I measure the success of what I chose to pin, is by the re-pins. The above Lanvin Spring 2014 ensemble is one such pin.
‘What Got My Attention” is the jacket silhouette in complementary proportion to the runway model and the pants.
The slender fitting sleeve, nicely set armhole of the jacket accentuates the fabric chosen. The feminine bow is a nice touch by color and size. Lastly, the trim fitting of the pant completes the overall proportion the designer had in mind.
I don’t know about you, but this is an enjoyable way to experience Spring!
