I have always been a sucker for graphic design. I hate to say it, but I do judge books by their covers and even refused to read poorly set type. That’s why when I came across Frau Blau, an Israeli design duo I was smitten by their presentation of their winter line.
The collage/illustrations are just so wonderfully executed, and they give me enough of an idea of the cuts and textiles. I wonder if I were a designer I would try to have my look books illustrated, if anything but to stand out from the rest of the pack. Heck I fell for it. Besides, the dark whimsy kind of reminds me of Edward Gorey, one of the few people to delightfully make light rather grim stories (you know like The Gnashleycrumb Tinies).
