Fall 2013, Illustrated: Jamie Lee Reardin dreams up 5 of this season’s iconic looks
For the fashion-minded folk, fall is the time to go big or go home. It’s the time to fantasize about impossibly elegant wardrobes full of designer duds so delicious that they only exist in your dreams. We’re all about perpetuating fantasy, and today, we’re doing just that with the help of Los Angeles-based and Toronto-born illustrator Jamie Lee Reardin. Known for her leggy drawings of fashion icons for Moda Operandi, V Magazine and Dior Beauty, Reardin took her usual pencils to the next level by illustrating five of Fall 2013’s strongest looks using the insanely cool Windows app, Fresh Paint. The app, which we discovered on HP’s light as a feather Envy x2 tablet while on a trip to Stockholm with Windows earlier this year, allows you to paint on the screen, literally, with the use of sensor-induced paintbrush. It’s like using an oil canvas, but easier!
For Reardin’s masterwork, we selected 5 of Fall 2013 fashion’s most iconic looks including Carven’s larger-than-life bubblegum pink overcoat, which launched an oversized movement of its own this season, and Versace’s punk-meets-sexy PVC slit column dress, which couldn’t be more aggressively opposing if it tried. Three of Fall 2013’s big fashion statements: skirt suits, plaid and boudoir, are also addressed in Reardin’s sketches of Prada, Céline and Louis Vuitton’s offerings for the season.
