Fashion, Illustrated

November 10, 2012

When Brooke Costello said she was looking for collaborators to work with on a fashion illustration project, I jumped at the chance. I knew exactly what I’d love to see her illustrate – my current obsession with statement necklaces on chunky knits.

If you needed any convincing of my latest style crush, I’m currently on a train home to Hertfordshire to see my parents for the weekend. Taking up the seat next to me on the train is an entire bag’s worth of said statement necklaces and deliciously chunky, woollen jumpers. I’ve just spent £140 in Primark on the offending items (about £130 more than I can afford).

I picked the outfits above as designs I’d love to see come to life. Necklaces I’ve coveted over the past few weeks but couldn’t afford, and jumpers that contrast beautifully against them. The Zara cable knit sweater (£45.99, current collection) was something that caught my eye as being a little out of the ordinary. From the front it’s your average cable knit, turn it around and a red velvet bow detail transforms the design.

The Topshop premium multi ball collar (£50), featured in illustration A, is literally a show stopper. Pair this necklace with any outfit for an instant style update.

You can take a look at more of Brooke’s gorgeous fashion illustrations here.

Have you come across any great statement pieces recently? What do you think of the fashion illustrations?
