Time for this week’s Style Imitating Art (SIA) round-up! Once again, my inspiration pick, famed fashion illustrator Rene Gruau’s 1960s “Air France” poster, which I highlighted last week in this post.
First up, Mike, who definitely nailed the hat and pose from the inspiration poster! He reflected the blue, yellow, and white colors in the poster by pairing together a light yellow shirt, blue jeans, and that cool white fedora. Very nice, Mike!
Next is my friend Stephanie, who shows off a fantastic straw beach hat! So many cool details in her inspiration outfit, from the stripes in the hat to the neck scarf to the arty earrings to the graphic-print skirt.
Next is SIA co-founder Salazar from 14 Shades of Grey, with another great straw hat! The yellow brooch is absolutely perfect for the inspiration poster, and I love that she chose her tan shoes as they were a match for the woman’s tan! 😉
Carrie from Petal by Petal is back, looking great in a graphic-print, black-and-white top. She was inspired by the strong black lines of Gruau’s poster — and make sure you visit her blog post to see a close-up of the top’s print, as well as how she added in bits of red.
Kezzie went a different inspiration route for a walk in the rainy English countryside. She got in some sunny, clear skies via her umbrella, and her outfit boasts the yellow, blue, and red tones from the inspiration poster. So charming!
SIA co-founder Jess from Animated Cardigan is back from vacation with an awesome inspiration look! Stripes and bold colors and straw hats, oh my! 😀
And finally, there’s me and my LBD and black straw fedora. Like Carrie, I loved the bold black lines of the poster, which are hallmarks of Gruau’s style. You can view more pics in my post from yesterday.
Thanks to all the ladies and gent(s) who participated in this week’s SIA post! So.many.cool.hats! 😀
Next Monday, be sure to visit Jess @ Animated Cardigan for the next SIA challenge.
