Peek

IMG_6357

Another glimpse of some ERMIE Fall '11 Textiles...these were all developed from my recent purchases from Kneeland Co. Vintage Berber textiles. Scanned, edited, cropped, enlarged, tweaked, repeated, collaged. Some of the prints capture the nubby texture of the original woven textiles. Others are more like watercolors. You better like color if you are planning to wear ERMIE for Fall :)

I started goofing off...
There's a photo of Patti Smith I was trying to emulate here...hm. I don't think headbands are for me. I just think of Luke Wilson's character in The Royal Tenenbaums when I look at this photo.

Dress by Ilana Kohn in this photo.

That's better.

I've been enjoying playing with the color in my photographs lately.
Sometimes I think everything starts to look the same on my blog & in blog-land...so many 'tasteful' photos...it all becomes too homogeneous. So I thought I'd push the envelope a tad with a few of these shots. The color is a little psychedelic here...I was inspired by Billy Name's photographs of the Factory. Would you believe me if I told you I've never tried LSD? Many of my Tumblr followers will be disappointed...

Look at those two ladies talking about your fall/winter collection. How did they find out about it before we did? I really like how you have combined prints in the dress on the lady on the left.

What a beautiful selection of prints. The print and colours in that top photo of you are my favourite in this lot.

I think you look a bit more Patti Smith than Richie Tenenbaum! And I don't think you need to worry about blending in too much in blogland - this blog and your tumblr definitely stand out.

I love that last photograph! Your photos always stand apart for me. I find them very inspiring. This might sound funny, but I look at food very differently now!
