Autumn Layers

October 8th, 2014 12:22 pm

Autumn is here and what better way to embrace the sudden change in weather, than to layer up in style.  Team our teddy fur coat with these luxurious textures and prints.  Mix and max our favourite pieces, including our amazing Svoboda jeans.  Add some ankle boots, thick socks and a cosy scarf. Who said keeping warm had to be boring?

I wore this dress out with my husband for his birthday in downtown Milwaukee, WI. It was class and sexiness all in one. I got compliments all night, but that seems to happen any time I have on one of my Anna Scholz pieces.

Customers: we invite you to submit your photos now for the photo contest for October. E-mail us snaps of you in your favourite Anna Scholz looks to for publication on our blog, and you’ll be entered to win a £100 online shopping voucher. Whether you’re out on the town or just hanging out, we’d love to see how you lend your personal flavour to Anna’s clothes.

Gilbert Legrand – Household objects as you’ve never seen them before.

September 30th, 2014 4:39 pm

Gilbert Legrand is a French artist whose creativity allows him to find faces and characters in ordinary objects. He brings these to life for others to see through his illustration and 3d sculptures.

As a child Gilbert admitted he ‘had a little obsession’ even inventing new toys by using everyday domestic utensils  This encouraged Gilbert to become an illustrator which gave him the license to sketch the faces he constantly saw in the objects all around him.

Once he had fully developed his sketching and illustrating, he began to use actual objects like scissors, brushes, zippers, and various pieces of cutlery, turning them into whimsical sculptures.

With the addition of a face and some arms and legs, a paintbrush can become a mangled fox, a hinge can become a shady salesman, and a comb can become someone fighting against a gust of wind.

The Paris-born artist currently works in Toulouse and has been creating these imaginative sculptures for over 10 years. Fortunately for us, Legrand regularly exhibits his works in art centres across France, so try and find a show on your next visit.

If you can’t get to France to see an exhibition, hopefully Legrand’s wildly imaginative creations will help you to find the fun characters that are hidden all around you!
