• Maybe it’s because I’m enjoying fall so far and these evoke that perfect autumn feeling, or maybe it’s because old school fashion illustration is so beautiful, but the fact is that I am thinking of buying one of these vintage Hermès prints to frame and put on one of the shelves in my home office.

Without a face: a series of works created by Erik Madigan Heck, focusing on the back of the garments, erasing the face, and offering a different perspective on the standard fashion shoot. “So much of what we see today is concerned with the face — with celebrity, with the politics of a person and their endorsement. I wanted to refocus our attention on the most basic elements of what I believe fashion and art are truly concerned with — color, form, texture, and seeing into a space beyond ourselves. For me, fashion is merely another mode to understand our relationship with beauty’s transcendent qualities.”

• I want this entrance for my home
